General Faiz and No-Confidence Motion:

General Faiz once again made headlines when a no-confidence motion was filed against Imran Khan.

Asif Farooqi of BBC Urdu in his article pointed out that the Prime Minister wanted to remove the army chief and appoint someone else (probably General Faiz) as army chief.

The article narrates the story of last night’s events that

Meanwhile, two uninvited guests also reached the Prime Minister’s House by helicopter, with extraordinary security and well-armed men, and met the Prime Minister in private for about an hour and a half.

It is unknown at this time what they talked about.

The sudden arrival of these uninvited guests was unexpected for the Prime Minister. Imran Khan was waiting for the helicopter but his guesses and expectations about the passengers of this helicopter proved to be completely wrong.

Sources said that the former prime minister was expecting that his newly appointed officials would reach the Prime Minister’s House in this helicopter and after that, the noise which started from Parliament House after the Supreme Court decision would subside.

It may have happened, but the problem was that the legal document (notification) that should have been issued by the Ministry of Defense for this highest dismissal and a new appointment could not be issued, thus thwarting the Prime Minister’s House’s attempt at this ‘revolutionary’ change.

On Sunday morning, however, the Army spokesman denied the allegations.”
