Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan suggested on Saturday that he might not accept a vote to oust him, a move he alleged was being orchestrated by the United States.
Opposition parties say Khan has failed to revive an economy battered by the coronavirus pandemic or fulfil promises to make his government more transparent and accountable, and have put forward a no-confidence motion due to be voted on Sunday.
“How can I accept the result when the entire process is discredited?” Khan told a select group of foreign journalists at his office. “The move to oust me is blatant interference in domestic politics by the United States,” he said, terming it an attempt at “regime change”.
