The All Parties Conference (APC) of the opposition parties will be held on June 26, said a statement issued by the spokesperson of the Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) party. In order to make this meeting successful JUI-F leader Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman has called opposition leaders on Sunday (June 23) to formally invite them for scheduled conference.
According to sources, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president Shehbaz Sharif and Vice-president Maryam Nawaz had a telephonic conversation with Fazl over the APC. Moreover, the JUI-F chief also spoke to Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari. Fazl also contacted Awami National Party (ANP) chief Asfandyar Wali Khan, National Party chief Hasil Bizenjo and Pashtunkhwa Milli Awami Party (PkMAP) chairman Mehmood Khan Achakzai.
The opposition parties will consult on the change of Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani, preventing the budget from getting passed from both houses, anti-government movement and a possible lock-down of the capital city in the APC. In May, during Ramazan, leaders of the opposition parties had announced their plans to “launch protests inside and outside the parliament after Eidul Fitr” and hold an APC to “chalk out a joint strategy on how to tackle the problems facing Pakistan”.
