A day after the federal government railroaded a plethora of legislations including the electoral reforms bill through the joint session of the parliament, Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain has once again invited the opposition parties to talks on reforms, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

In a series of tweets uploaded on Thursday, Fawad said the opposition parties should come to the Speaker’s chamber instead of knocking on the door of the courts on the issue of the reforms.

Fawad said that suggestions from the opposition would be welcomed, advising the opposition to understand the electronic voting machines system. He assured them that all their concerns would be addressed.

He further said that the PTI could not turn back on the issue of voting rights to overseas Pakistanis which was promised in its election manifesto.

Moreover, the minister said that the politics of the Sharifs and Zardari families had now become part of the history. The time had come for new leadership in the opposition parties, he added.

The next two years will determine the politics of the next two decades of Pakistan’s history. The politics of the 1990s would be buried in the next two years, he remarked.
