What’s next in Pakistan? Imran will be tried for treason and if found guilty, he could face the death penalty.

There is a political crisis in Pakistan. The Supreme Court has upheld the dissolution of Parliament and the dismissal of the no-confidence motion by Imran Khan, Deputy Speaker of Parliament Qasim Suri and President Arif Alvi. Restoring Parliament, the court has sought a vote on the no-confidence motion against Imran on 9 April.

April 9 is going to be a very important day for the politics of Pakistan. It is also certain that Imran Khan has lost the confidence of the House. In the current situation, it seems impossible for Imran to win the no-confidence motion. If the opposition government is formed, then Shahbaz Sharif can become the new Prime Minister of Pakistan. If this happens then it can be a big problem for Imran. Imran could face severe punishment for conspiring to dissolve Parliament and rejecting a no-confidence motion.Dodging trust vote, Imran Khan walks dangerous line as Pak constitution is clear on 'high treason'

By what rule was the no-confidence motion rejected?
On 3 April, Fawad Chaudhary, a minister in the Imran government, spoke on the no-confidence motion. Voting on the proposal was to be held on the same day. Chowdhury referred to Article 5 of the Constitution of Pakistan before the Deputy Speaker. It has two clauses. according to this –
“Loyalty to the state is the fundamental duty of every citizen.”
It is the duty of every citizen to follow the constitution and law. Be it inside or outside Pakistan. After this, the Deputy Speaker dismissed the no-confidence motion as a foreign conspiracy against the country.

The Supreme Court overturned the Deputy Speaker’s decision. He also termed Imran Khan’s decision to recommend elections as unconstitutional. It is clear that the Imran government has violated Section 5 (II). Now, if power falls in the hands of the opposition, the new government can prosecute Imran for violating the law.

What punishment can Imran get if the case goes ahead?
If Imran Khan is found guilty of violating the Constitution of Pakistan, he will be prosecuted under Article 6 of the Constitution. it states that
“If any person contravenes any article of the Constitution, misrepresents it or tries to prevent it by force and conspiracy, that person shall be found guilty of treason.”
“Whoever aids in violating the Constitution under Article 1 shall also be found guilty of treason.”
“The Majlis-e-Shura will punish the traitors who violate the Constitution. Punishment ranging from death to life imprisonment is also mentioned.”
