Outgoing Imran Khan

Opposition parties have been protesting against the rule of former Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan in recent days. The party lost a majority in parliament as it withdrew its support for Imran Khan's Tehreek-e-Insaf coalition. As a result, Imran Khan resigned as Prime Minister. Thus the regime has gone to the opposition Pakistan Muslim League party.

The leader of that party, Shehbaz Sharif, was elected the new Prime Minister of Pakistan yesterday. Meanwhile, Imran Khan has also resigned as an MP.
