Pakistan's prime minister, Imran Khan, who is under pressure, is asking the head of state to create the conditions for new elections. He had previously escaped a no-confidence vote.
Pakistani President Arif Alvi has dissolved parliament, thereby creating the conditions for early elections. These must now take place within 90 days. A few hours earlier, Prime Minister Imran Khan had managed to avoid being removed from office by a vote of no confidence that was considered certain.
The Vice President of Parliament and Khan ally Qasim Suri had rejected the planned vote on a no-confidence motion by the opposition as unconstitutional. Khan himself then said on television that he had asked the President to dissolve Parliament. The population should be prepared for new elections.
Khan 69, faces growing criticism in Pakistan over the country's economic situation. The country is suffering from rising inflation, a persistently weak national currency and high national debt.
In addition, a few days ago, Khan's government lost the support of coalition partner MQM-P. More than a dozen MPs from Khan's PTI party had also announced that they would withdraw their support for the prime minister. As a result, the government no longer had a majority in parliament.

The opposition parties had called on the former prominent cricketer to resign ahead of the planned no-confidence vote. Kahn had recently accused the United States of operating his downfall. He spoke of a foreign conspiracy to disempower him. Several anti-American protests followed the statements. The Washington government has denied the allegations.
Imran Khan rebelled against the country and the constitution
The United Opposition has said that Prime Minister Imran Khan today openly rebelled against the country and the Constitution, the punishment of which is enshrined in Article 6 of the Constitution.
