Both Prime Minister Imran Khan and the opposition needed the support of 172 members to turn the tide in their favour.

However, the no-confidence motion was reversed when Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri rejected the opposition’s resolution against the Prime Minister under Article 5A, declaring it unconstitutional.
