Donald Trump tweets support for Boris Johnson amid Parliament suspension

US President Donald Trump has reaffirmed his support for Boris Johnson as he joined politicians in reacting to the news that the Prime Minister is to suspend parliament.

The Queen has approved an order to prorogue Parliament, which will effectively suspend it for a month.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said his move to prorogue Parliament was simply to set out his "exciting agenda" in a Queen's Speech on October 14.

But critics, including Commons Speaker John Bercow, have lambasted the move, calling it a "constitutional outrage" designed to stop MPs from intervening as the UK heads towards a no-deal Brexit on October 31.

Pakistan's opposition parties unite to rally against PM Imran Khan

A group of 11 major opposition parties in Pakistan have joined hands to raise their protest against the ruling Prime Minister Imran Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI). A large number of people gathered in Gujranwala city of Punjab Province for a massive opposition rally on Friday. The government even blocked the roads to Gujranwala to flog the opposition rally. On September 20, the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) was formed by 11 opposition parties to launch a three-phased anti-government movement under an "action plan". It includes countrywide public meetings, protest demonstrations and rallies followed by a 'decisive long march' towards Islamabad in January 2021. Opposition leaders are also seeking no-confidence motions and mass resignations from Parliament for 'the selected' prime minister's resignation. Opposition parties have accused Pakistan Army of rigging the 2018 elections that brought Imran Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf party to power.
