Lahore, July 10 : The impeachment of Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf was not important for the PML-N, instead it wanted to focus on the restoration of deposed Supreme Court judges and resolve its differences with the PPP over the issue because the country faced serious challenges while the judges remain sacked, said a PML-N leader.

He said that the PML-N ministers who had quit the federal cabinet on May 12 would not rejoin the cabinet unless there was some agreement on the deposed judges' issue.

He also said that his party would not set any deadline for the purpose, reported the Dawn.

The paper quoted PML-N sources as saying that a meeting between Nawaz Sharif and PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari could be productive only if the PPP co-chairman carried some solid proposals on the judges' issue. The PML-N would not rejoin the federal cabinet unless the PPP restored the judges of superior courts along the lines of Sharif's suggestions, they added.

Lately, it is being said that about half-a-dozen ministers would be taken from the PPP while one ministry would go each to the Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-F and the Awami National Party.
