JUI-F chief Fazlur Rehman postpones APC

ISLAMABAD: Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman announced the postponement of the All Parties Conference (APC), convened by his party, for a few days.

 

Talking to media, Fazlur Rehman said that a high-level meeting of his party has decided to convene a parliamentary leaders’ meeting ahead of the APC to finalize the modalities of the “all-important” meeting.

 

He maintained that the PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif, Pakistan People’s Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Co-Chairman Asif Zardari will participate in parliamentary leaders’ conference.

 

It is pertinent to mention here that the differences between two major opposition parties –PPP and PML-N- had turned the prospects of a successful APC bleak.

 

Sources said, in order to patch up with the PPP, the leadership of PML-N had put forward the need to restore trust as its foremost precondition.

 

PML-N leadership had conditioned its participation in the opposition’s APC as the former ruling party was enraged over the recent statement of PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari, in which he held PML-N supreme leader Nawaz Sharif responsible for the cases against PPP leaders.

 

The PML-N had demanded from the leadership of PPP to first take steps to mend the trust deficit developed in the wake of recent political scenario.
