Islamabad, Mar 10 (UNI) Pakistan's Prime Minister Muhammadmian Soomro today sent an official summary to President Pervez Musharraf for convening inaugural session of the National Assembly.

The summary was sent to the President at the conclusion of a high-level meeting that he chaired at his camp office in the garrison town of Rawalpindi to discuss in detail the situation arising out of a decision by the Pakistan Peoples Party and the Pakistan Muslim League to form coalition government and restore deposed judges of the superior courts.

''The Prime Minister has forwarded the summary to the President, recommending him to convene inaugural session of the National Assembly,'' a senior government official told UNI in Islamabad.

He said it was now for the President to fix a date for convening of the session.

An official source told this scribe that today's meeting under president Musharraf mainly focused on repurcussions of the PPP-PML(N) decision to restore judges, sacked by the former Army chief after they refused to take a fresh oath after imposition of emergency on November 3, 2007.

The two parties, in a historic joint declaration yesterday, vowed to form coalition governments in the centre and in Punjab province and restore deposed judges through a parliamentary resolution to be passed by federal legislature within 30 days of the formation of new government.

Analysts believe that restoration of judges including the chief justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry would mean difficult times for president Musharraf as the restored judges would start re-hearing of cases involving his eligibility to contest presidential election for the seecond time - that too in uniform.

General (retd) Musharraf, who got himself elected on October 6 for the second term in uniform, quit as army chief on November 29 and took oath as civilian President on November 30.
