An important meeting of the opposition parties’ heads was held at Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly (NA) and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif’s house in Islamabad, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Saturday. 

The meeting decided to bring a no-trust motion against the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Mahmood Khan soon. 

The opposition conclave was attended by Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari, Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman, former prime minister and Leader of the Opposition in Senate Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani, and Deputy Chairman Senate Salim Mandviwalla (both from PPP).

The meeting took stock of the current political situation of the country, particularly the situation arising out of the no-trust motion submitted by the opposition against the government in the National Assembly. 

Sources informed that the huddle which was presided over by PDM Chief Maulana Fazl also held consultation on bringing no-confidence motion against KP Chief Minister and gave it a go-ahead. 

The PPP assured the meeting of KP assembly’s 45 MPAs support who belonged to the ruling PTI. 

It is expected that the opposition would submit a no-trust move against the KP chief minister in a few days, sources said adding that a large group of PTI MPAs was ready to join the PPP.

A four-member parliamentary group of Balochistan Awami Party has already announced its separation from the PTI government.
