Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan said he will face a no-confidence vote on Sunday amid reports that the opposition has garnered the numbers it needs to oust him from office, raising political uncertainty as the country grapples with high inflation and debt repayments. 

“On Sunday, Pakistan’s fate will be decided,” Khan said in a televised address on Thursday. “I will fight to the last and if I win, I will come back stronger,” he added.
