Islamabad (August 02, 2018): Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) has arranged an All Parties Conference (APC) today.
According to the details, former ruling Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz is going to host an All Parties Conference (APC) of opposition groups in Islamabad today to discuss the rigging in polls and post election scenario.
The APC is expected to chalk out a strategy to hold protests against alleged election rigging and to field their candidates on key posts to challenge Imran Khan-led coalition partners in the National Assembly.Earlier, former Sindh governor and PML-N leader Mohammad Zubair invited Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM) to an all-party conference of opposition groups in Islamabad.
According to sources, the former governor called MQM-P leader Faisal Sabzwari and invited his party to attend the APC being held today.
PML-N, PPP and MMA have already decided to set up a joint opposition front to give tough time to the incoming PTI government.Opposition parties are keen to field their candidates on key posts to challenge Imran Khan-led coalition partners in the National Assembly.
Meanwhile, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan directed his close aide Jahangir Khan Tarin to immediately contact Muttahida Qaumi Movement after it was reportedly asked by the PPP to choose between Sindh and federal governments.
According to well-placed sources, PTI leaders have sprung into action over PPP’s conditional offer to MQM on joining the Sindh government.
Prime Minister-designate Imran Khan has asked his party to step up contacts with the MQM and persuade the party to back the PTI-led federal government.Earlier, Pakistan People’s Party offered Muttahida Qaumi Movement to join them as partner in Sindh Government once again and abandon Imran Khan’s offer to join federal government.
According to sources, PPP leadership asked MQM-Pakistan leadership to decide to make choice between the federal and Sindh cabinet. They have been conveyed a clear message to the MQM leadership that the latter would not be welcomed to the Sindh cabinet if it decides to join the PTI government in the center too.
Sources told further that it was not possible that the MQM can become part of both the federal and provincial governments.
“MQM will have to chose one of them,” said a source.MQM has won 16 Sindh Assembly seats in the elections held on July 25 and six National National Assembly seats.
It has also been invited by the PTI to join the central government but the party has yet to make any decision.
