North of England Correspondent

Pakistan’s parliament will meet to choose a new prime minister tomorrow after Imran Khan was ousted from power by losing a no-confidence vote late last night.

The former cricket star had clung on to power this week by dissolving parliament and claiming t hat Western powers were trying to remove him from office.

But his coalition partners deserted him and he became the first Pakistani prime minister to be removed from office by a confidence vote.
