Formal discussion on caretaker PM to begin in May: Shah
ISLAMABAD: Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Syed Khursheed Shah said on Monday he will hold a meeting with the prime minister this week to discuss the caretaker setup.
Speaking to the media, he said the opposition allies have yet not suggested any names for the caretaker prime minister, adding that the PPP would also disclose the names after a party meeting.
Shah said efforts are underway to appoint a person of impeccable credentials as caretaker prime minister to ensure smooth conduct of the coming elections.
He said he wanted formal discussions over the caretaker government should commence in the first week of May.
The Opposition leader slammed the ruling Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N), saying it was setting new precedents in the country. Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said he did not accept the Senate chairman, which meant that he did not accept Parliament either, Shah said.
Slamming Sharif, he said the former premier used Parliament to get elected to the prime minister’s office for the third time.
Earlier, Nawaz Sharif talking to media said he held discussions with the prime minister with regard to the caretaker setup, but he couldn’t reveal details.
He was responding to a question put to him by a reporter inside the accountability court where he appeared today along with his daughter to face trial on corruption charges.
