Prime Minister Imran Khan has reached the parliament house to seek the vote of confidence.

According to the details, before the start of the National Assembly session, Imran Khan will hold meetings with members hailing for his party.

A heavy contingent of police has been deployed around D-Chowk, Parliament Lodges and the National Assembly ahead of the confidence vote.

PTI workers have reached outside the parliament to express solidarity with the Prime Minister.

Imran Khan had announced earlier this week that he would seek a vote of confidence from his party’s lawmakers, following an upset in the Senate election on March 3.

While the ruling PTI made gains, it experienced a shocking upset on the Islamabad seat where PPP’s Yousuf Raza Gilani bagged 169 votes, defeating the government’s nominee, Hafeez Shaikh, who received 164 votes, meaning that several ruling alliance MNAs had voted for the Pakistan Democratic Movement candidate.
