Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Monday he was not concerned about the no-confidence vote since the situation was “satisfactory”.
The premier made these remarks during a meeting of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf core committee called to design a strategy in view of the country’s precarious political environment.
Imran Khan said the government was ready to defeat the no-confidence motion and that all decisions will be handled in consultation. In a hurry since their [corruption] cases are close to end, he added.
The government said it was not in a hurry to call the National Assembly. The speaker must summon the session within 14 days of receiving the motion.
The allies allegedly stood with the government and were paid millions to vote against Imran.
Planning Minister Asad Umar informed the party leadership on interactions with allies, while Babar Awan addressed them on legal issues. They briefed the core committee on organisational issues.
It was determined to continue the countrywide political gathering to “expose the crooked clique”.
