Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s government is on the verge of losing its majority in Parliament as three key allies are about to quit his cabinet, a top leader from a party supporting the government said, making the backing of the country’s strong army crucial for his survival.

The exit of the alliance partners would shore up support for the opposition in a no-confidence vote slated for later this month in the National Assembly, Chaudhry Parvez Elahi, whose Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid party brings the support of five members in the lower house, said in an interview with Hum News TV Tuesday.
