In response to a question, Dr Imran Ismail stated, “I hope MQM-P makes the right decision.” adding that the MQM-P and the joint opposition accord were not discussed during the meeting.

Note that, in a major setback, the MQM-P has opted to abandon the ruling PTI and join the joint Opposition in opposing Prime Minister Imran Khan’s no-confidence vote.

With the MQM-P’s unexpected attack on Imran Khan before the no-confidence motion, the government is now supported by only 164 members of Parliament. Meanwhile, the unified Opposition has grown to 177 members.
