Pakistan PM to address nation as no-confidence debate postponed
Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan was to address the nation Thursday night as debate on a no-confidence motion against him in parliament was postponed.

No Pakistan premier has ever seen out a full term, and Khan is facing the biggest challenge to his rule since being elected in 2018, with opponents accusing him of economic mismanagement and foreign-policy bungling.

Debate on the no-confidence motion was due to start Thursday, but the deputy speaker suspended proceedings when legislators declined to first address other items on the agenda.
