Lahore, May 12 : PML-N leader and former Pakistan premier Nawaz Sharif will chair a joint meeting of his party's Central Working Committee (CWC) and parliamentary group in Lahore today to decide whether to continue his party's support to the PPP-led government or move out of the coalition.
"Nawaz Sharif will return from London on Monday and will chair the CWC and the parliamentary group meeting to brief the members on his talks with Asif Ali Zardari. Then, the party would decide on its future ties with the PPP," the Daily Times quoted PML-N Information Secretary and Federal Education Minister Ahsan Iqbal as saying.
Talking to reporters in London last evening, Nawaz said that his party had done its best to resolve the judges' issue and had held several rounds of talks with the PPP, but the two parties could not agree on a framework for the restoration of the judges sacked on November 3. He added that neither of the two deadlines, i.e. April 30 and May 12, for the restoration of judges, was met.
"We want the honourable reinstatement of the sacked judges and not the one that makes us repent afterwards," he added.
