Pakistan PM Khan faces ouster amid fears of failing economy

Opposition closes in on government, threatening IMF deal

ISLAMABAD -- Opposition parties in Pakistan's parliament are set to topple the government of Prime Minister Imran Khan, as critics charge his policies are stoking inflation and amount to "selling out Pakistan's sovereignty" to the International Monetary Fund in exchange for loans.

Observers say the development could spark investor outflows and even damage China's Belt and Road Initiative in the country.
