The main goals of this meeting are to plan a strategy to challenge the Supreme Court’s election-related order and to discuss the possibility of holding talks with the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.
PM Shehbaz Sharif called the meeting, which comes after a previous gathering where coalition parties discussed the same topic.
A review of the political climate will also be done at the meeting in light of the Supreme Court’s decision ordering the Election Commission of Pakistan to hold elections in Punjab on May 14.
Political parties had been given until April 27 by the Supreme Court to come to an agreement regarding holding concurrent elections.
The meeting between the PTI and the ruling parties, however, has been scheduled for the same day, suggesting the possibility of talks between the two parties.
The meeting has been scheduled, and information minister Marriyum Aurangzeb has denied media reports that the prime minister intends to ask the coalition partners for a vote of confidence because of disagreements over the idea of talks with Imran Khan, the PTI leader.
Reports had surfaced that some members of the ruling coalition were against holding dialogue with the PTI.
Ayaz Sadiq, the leader of the PML-N, reportedly called Asad Qaiser, the head of the PTI, and proposed a meeting to begin negotiations. On Wednesday, the two former speakers decided to get together.
The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) has cancelled the protest it had planned in Sindh against fragmented elections.The party has pleaded with the judiciary to rule that elections for the provincial and national assemblies should take place on the same day.
The outcome of the upcoming meeting between the PTI and the ruling parties will have a significant impact on Pakistani politics in the run-up to the Punjab elections.
The Prime Minister’s decision to call the meeting demonstrates his willingness to communicate with the opposition and seek common ground.
