Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz Vice-President Maryam Nawaz has taken her team to a meeting with the Pakistan People’s Party Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto and other PPP leaders to reach a consensus about the no-confidence move against PM Imran Khan, sources said.

The meeting followed a parley of the Pakistan Democratic Movement leaders that remained inconclusive as Bilawal has refused to budge over the no-trust move.

According to insiders, the PML-N is of the view that the PDM does not have the numbers required to achieve the target and for the purpose, the PDM needs PML-Q and the MQM while success sans the establishment’s support is out of the question. 

The PPP leadership proposed bringing a no-confidence motion against the PTI. The party insisted the move is a legal option and was part of APC declaration and there was turmoil within the PTI and its allies, the MQM, PML-Q and BAP, are too unhappy.
