Khursheed Shah might lose his position as opposition leader in NA: sources
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Khursheed Shah may soon lose his position as leader of the opposition in National Assembly as opposition parties are in talks to replace him with a fiercer opponent, sources told ARY News on Thursday.
According to ARY News Islamabad Bureau Chief Sabir Shakir, opposition parties other than Shah’s own party (PPP) have almost decided to bring in a new leader of opposition and it could be anyone from Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid-e-Azam (PML-Q) or the Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rasheed himself.
The development is critical as NAB is hearing cases against the former PM Nawaz Sharif’s family and general elections are just months away. The leader of opposition and prime minister jointly select the interim setup and appoint a chairman of the National Accountability Board (NAB).
