If the no-trust motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan fails, the opposition parties have a Plan B.
Plan C will be implemented if Plan B fails or outcomes are not achieved in a timely manner. “Removing the prime minister with the no-trust manoeuvre is Plan ‘A’, insiders added.
“If the no-confidence motion fails, the opposition will move rapidly to Plan B, which will push the prime minister to seek a confidence vote,” according to sources in the government.
“The vote of confidence would be demanded from the prime minister,” sources stated. “The option of estranged Treasury members resigning is part of Plan-B”.
The President and Speaker will be notified in writing. The opposition will need 172 votes to pass the no-trust motion. To win the confidence vote, the PM would have needed 172 MPs’ votes.
