Pakistan's government 'will survive' confidence vote
Pakistan's interior minister has insisted that the country's government will survive, as it emerged that the prime minister and his team will face a confidence vote in parliament.
The vote is scheduled for Monday, the same day as a Supreme Court deadline for the government to reopen corruption cases against political figures and amid a deepening political crisis with the military.
Speaking to the BBC's Orla Guerin, Rehman Malik predicted a "bumpy flight" before elections in 2013, but said ups and downs were to be expected what he described as a transitional period.
