ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Peoples Party Senator Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar has thanked the president of Pakistan for endorsing the opposition's stance that the prime minister has lost majority in the parliament.

“According to the Constitution, the president asks the prime minister to take vote of confidence when he loses majority in the parliament,” he said in a statement on Friday. He said the prime minister can try to comfort his members on his defeat as much as he wants but would not succeed as change is coming.

He said the opposition can bring a no-confidence motion anytime after the prime minister takes vote of confidence. “There is no prohibition of six months in the Constitution to move a no-confidence motion after the vote of confidence,” he said, adding that now the leadership of the Pakistan Democratic Movement will decide when to table a no-confidence motion. “The members from treasury benches are ready to desert Imran Khan for the opposition parties' tickets for the next elections,” he concluded.
