Pakistan’s internal turmoils

Pakistan’s internal affairs have been thrust under the global spotlight over the weekend, with their Prime Minister Imran Khan ousted and in response the largest protests the country has ever seen.

Saturday saw Khan vote out of power via a parliamentary vote, with 174 of 342 members voting for a non-confidence motion ending his reign as Prime Minister.

The decision of the vote means that the lower house will meet on Monday to elect a new prime minister and government. Presiding over the assembly, Ayaz Sadiq stated that nomination papers for candidates need to be filled in by 11 am local time Sunday.

Khan’s party attempted to intervene with the non-confidence vote causing multiple adjournments of the lower house, and stating that they truly believe there was a foreign conspiracy to oust Khan from office.

On Friday Khan gave a passionate speech, where he once again accused his political opponents of colluding with the United States to unseat him over foreign policy choices, as regularly they’d favour China, Russia and would defy the U.S. He also stated that Washington strongly opposed his February 24 meeting with Vladimir Putin in the Kremlin, mere hours after Russia began military operations in Ukraine.

Currently, the U.S. State Department denies any involvement in Pakistan’s internal politics, as State Department spokeswoman Jalina Porter told the press on Friday there was “absolutely no truth to these allegations.”

Khan is adamant that the people of Pakistan need to defend their sovereignty and oppose U.S. dictations.

Pakistan has a less than clean track record with political instability, with no Prime Minister completing a full term since becoming an independent nation in 1947. This would be the first time however that a Prime Minister has been removed through a no-confidence vote.

In retaliation to the ousting, the people of Pakistan have spoken with massive demonstrations rocking multiple cities on Sunday. Literally, millions of people took to the streets to voice their frustration and to express their support for Khan. 

“Never have such crowds come out so spontaneously and in such numbers in our history, rejecting the imported govt led by crooks,” Khan said on Twitter, sharing footage of the protests.

Protests were spearheaded by Khan’s PTI party, who called on their supporters to take the streets across the country.

Early on Sunday Khan reiterated his allegations against the U.S., blaming his expulsion on Washington and labelling it a “regime change” operation aimed at bringing “into power a coterie of pliable crooks all out on bail.”

He said that Pakistan is entering a new period of “freedom struggle” and the Pakistani people need to protect their “sovereignty and democracy” from a “foreign conspiracy of regime change.”
