Pak military retains ‘dominant influence’ during Imran Khan’s tenure: US report

The Pakistan military, which orchestrated a “soft coup” to oust former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, has retained the “dominant influence” over foreign and security policies during Prime Minister Imran Khan’s tenure, a US congressional report has said.

The military, which was engaged in three “outright seizures” of power from civilian-led governments, had colluded with the country’s judiciary to overthrow the Pakistan Muslim League government led by Sharif, it said.

This purported “military-judiciary nexus” allegedly came to favour Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, the report titled ‘Pakistan Domestic Political Setting’ by the Congressional Research Service (CRS) noted.
