Prime Minister Imran Khan called a session of the National Assembly for a vote of confidence on Saturday after losing a key seat in the Senate election. Before the vote, a number of celebrities threw their weight behind the premier and said he is their true leader.
A vote of confidence is meant to show that the prime minister has the support of parliament. He needed 172 votes to win the confidence vote and got 176.
This included cricketers, celebrities and designers. The actual vote of confidence was done by MNAs, not the general public, but many people took to Twitter to show their support.
Actor Shaan Shahid posted several messages in support of PM Khan.
Rohail Hyatt of Vital Signs also supports the premier and said he was his only leader.
Actor Veena Malik also tweeted about the vote of confidence.
Designer Zarlasht Faisal, of the brand Zari Faisal, has been a longtime supporter of the PM and even made Imran Khan-related clothing items around election time.
Elan head Khadijah Shah also announced her support for PM Khan.
Singer Farhan Saeed shared a picture of the premier on his Instagram Stories.
So did actor and plastic surgeon Fahad Mirza. He said he stands with the PM.
Actor Ahsan Khan shared a video of an interview where someone asks him about PM Khan.
RJ Anoushey Ashraf said people who support the opposition are part of the problem.
