On Sunday, the PPP-led Pakistan government lost its majority in the National Assembly, as Muttahida Qaumi Movement, which has 25 MNAs, decided to sit on Opposition benches on account of differences with the ruling party.

The federal government can survive only if the PML-Q, having more than 50 MNAs in the 342-member House, supports the government, or if the PML-N, which has 91 MNAs, offers its support to the ruling coalition government, even without joining the set-up. (ANI)
