LONDON: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leaders arrived in London for an important meeting of the party on Saturday, Geo News reported.
PML-N leaders Khawaja Asif, Marriyum Aurangzeb, Rana Tanveer, Shehbaz Sharif, Ayaz Sadiq, Ahsan Iqbal and Amir Muqam are taking part in the meeting which is being held at Edgware Road’s Maroush gardens.
The meeting will focus on the extension of the army chief, the government’s accountability drive against opposition leaders and other political issues.
Last month, the government decided to extend the tenure of General Qamar Javed Bajwa as army chief. The Supreme Court allowed the government to extend General Bajwa’s tenure by six months and to decide for how long the army chief will be given an extension.
For that, the government will need a majority vote in both houses of the parliament. Defence Minister Pervaiz Khattak and Foreign Minister Qureshi both said recently that the government will consult opposition parties before starting the legislation.
