Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan could face removal from office this weekend, after the country’s top court ruled his move to block a no-confidence vote was unconstitutional.
Last Sunday, Mr Khan’s ruling party blocked a no-confidence vote which he was widely expected to lose.
His government then dissolved parliament and called a snap election.
Furious opposition members launched an appeal with the Supreme Court to decide the legality of the blocked vote.
The Supreme Court said in a ruling late on Thursday that the vote should go ahead.
In response to this, Mr Khan announced that he had called a cabinet meeting and would address the nation on Friday evening.
“My message to the nation is that I have always fought for Pakistan and will continue to fight till the last ball,” he wrote in a Twitter post.
