Now Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan faces a no-confidence motion brought by an enraged, united opposition that he might well lose. Even if he survives, he will find his political capital severely dented — and be even more in debt to the military.

Now Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan faces a no-confidence motion brought by an enraged, united opposition that he might well lose. Even if he survives, he will find his political capital severely dented — and be even more in debt to the military.

Pakistan's parliament will on Thursday begin a debate of no-confidence in the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan, which could see the former cricket star ousted and the return of political uncertainty in the nuclear-armed country.

Khan, 69, has been facing mounting criticism of his performance, including his management of an economy beset by high inflation and rising deficits, and he lost his majority in parliament on Wednesday when a main ally quit his coalition.

"The prime minister is as good as gone," the influential English-language Dawn newspaper said in an editorial on the front page of its website.

Parliament will begin debate on Khan's leadership at 4 p.m. (1100 GMT). A vote on the motion must be held by Monday.
