Panoti is the PM’s chair in Pakistan! No government has been able to complete its 5 year term.


For the first time in the history of Pakistan, a Prime Minister has to give up his seat through a no-confidence motion. The Pakistan National Assembly voted on a no-confidence motion against Imran Khan late last night (Saturday), in which he had to face defeat. It has been less than 4 years since he became the PM. No prime minister of Pakistan has completed a five-year term since 1947. Sometimes a prime minister gets lost in the house while someone is removed by the army. But what are the reasons that no government is able to complete its term there? Let’s understand.

it’s already 30
Let us tell you that there have been 30 Prime Ministers in Pakistan so far, out of which 7 were caretaker Prime Ministers. That is, a total of 23 times Pakistan has made someone the Prime Minister. But no one has been able to complete his five years. The main reason for this is the political interference of the army. Let’s take a look at the former Prime Ministers of Pakistan and find out how they were voted out of power.
