ISLAMABAD, Pakistan—Prime Minister Imran Khan blocked a no-confidence vote against him in Pakistan’s Parliament and called for fresh elections, turning a battle with the opposition into a constitutional crisis.

The deputy speaker of Parliament, who is a member of Mr. Khan’s party, rejected the vote on Sunday, saying it was the product of a conspiracy with foreign powers and thus breached an article of the constitution requiring loyalty to the country. The opposition had said it had enough votes to oust Mr. Khan.
