Pakistan’s prime minister, Imran Khan, lost a no-confidence vote in parliament after a dramatic week in which he violated the constitution in an attempt to stop the move going ahead. The Guardian reports that Khan’s loss leads the way for a new opposition coalition government, with the leader of the opposition, Shahbaz Sharif, the brother of the jailed former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, as interim prime minister. Sharif, who will be sworn in as the next prime minister in coming days said the opposition had no intention of taking “revenge” on Khan and will prioritise electoral reform, with a view to holding a general election “in due course”.
