New Delhi : Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan lost majority after one of its key allies withdrew its support and joined hands with Opposition, which had tabled a no-confidence motion against the current government.

Imran Khan needed 172 votes out of 342 to stay in power; but the Opposition now have 175 seats and has demanded that the PM must resign.

The Opposition also announced that Shehbaz Sharif will be replacing Imran Khan as the Prime Minister of Pakistan.

Meanwhile, PM Imran Khan's public address on Wednesday was postponed after he met with Pakistan Army chief.

It must be noted that there is no Pakistani Prime Minister yet who has completed his five year term at the office.
