LAHORE: After suspending its decision to withdraw from the Assemblies, the PML-N has now announced that it is not in favour of an in-house reform, as suggested by another faction in the 11-member coalition of the opposition.
Any other opposition party’s plan could be an in-house move, but we are not in its favour, since it is not a feasible choice. We would have to return to horse trade to do so, which we are opposed to. We saw how 64 votes (from the opposition) were reduced to 52 in the Senate chairman’s election… this game will have to be played again for an in-house shift,’ PML-N Secretary General Ahsan Iqbal told reporters here on Monday.
During a Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) meeting in Lahore about a week ago, the PPP had reportedly suggested an in-house amendment, but the alliance could not find a consensus on the idea.
The PML-N declared on Saturday that it would compete in the Senate elections, and any chance of resigning from the national and provincial assemblies would be weighed after that.
Ex-interior minister says Opp lawmakers to resign at right time
In addition, Mr. Iqbal claimed that the feasible choice for the opposition was to withdraw from the assembly at the right time. When the iron is hot, the opposition must unite and withdraw from the legislature. The entire structure will fail until 400 resignations are submitted,” he said optimistically.
In answer to a comment, he claimed that there were no variations between the PDM parties. The PDM is strong and battling for the rule of law and the constitution. He emphasised that this game that has been playing for the last 72 years will end now.
Iqbal said the lawsuit against Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) for foreign support had been pending for the past six years.
The PTI will be barred and Prime Minister Imran Khan disqualified if this case is determined on merit (by the Election Commission of Pakistan),” he said.”
When the PTI government is sent home, the former Interior Minister said more controversies will come to the fore that will not leave Imran Khan and his cronies somewhere to hide. “In this government, massive corruption is taking place,” he claimed.
