• As President Mamnoon Hussain called the National Assembly to meet on August 13, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf on Thursday claimed that it has achieved simple majority in the National Assembly after it garnered the support of the Grand Democratic Alliance (GDA) and the Balochistan National Party-Mengal (BNP-M).
• Pakistan is on the brink of economic disaster, experts say.
