  • Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Can the opposition unseat Imran Khan? | Inside Story” – below is their description.

    An alliance of opposition parties in Pakistan has held its first rally of the year against the government, demanding Prime Miniser Imran Khan step down.

    The Pakistan Democratic Movement – or PDM – called on supporters to gather outside the Election Commission, amid allegations Khan fraudulently financed his campaign.

    They say Khan accepted illegal funds from abroad in 2013

    Khan’s party admitted raising campaign funds through foreign accounts, but blamed illegalities on its agents in the U.S. without specifying who they were.

    PDM leaders say what Khan committed a ‘national crime’ and should be punished.

    So, will he step down?
