Prime Minister, Imran Khan secured vote of confidence in the National Assembly on Saturday afternoon. The PM secured 178 votes out of 180 votes during the confidence vote.

He also announced electoral reforms, saying: “We are doing things; we are fully engaged with overseas Pakistanis so they can cast votes, and secondly, we are bringing electronic machines.”

“We are bringing this system so that the one who loses, accepts defeat.”

According to the breakdown, 155 PTI lawmakers voted in favor of the premier.

Besides, seven lawmakers from the MQM-P, five each from the Balochistan Awami Party and the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid, three from Grand Democratic Alliance, and one each from the Awami Muslim League and the Jamhoori Watan Party cast their votes supporting the prime minister.
