ISLAMABAD: The Rehbar Committee meeting of opposition parties will be held today to decide the date of the All Parties Conference (APC) in the federal capital.
The meeting will be held at the residence of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) leader Akram Durani at 2:00 pm. The meeting will be attended by Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Ahsan Iqbal and Marriyum Aurangzeb of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Nayyar Bukhari and Farhatullah Babar of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), and leaders of eight other opposition parties.
The Rehbar Committee will decide about the agenda of the APC. The meeting will take suggestions on strengthening the alliance between the opposition parties.
The leaders of opposition parties are also scheduled to address a joint press conference after the conclusion of the Rehbar Committee meeting.
It may be recalled that PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif had an important meeting with PPP co-chairman and former president Asif Ali Zardari in Karachi yesterday.
At Bilawal House, the two leaders discussed the political and economic situation in the country and agreed to convene an APC. Earlier, the PPP had distanced itself from the Leader’s Committee expressing reservations, but now the party has decided to end the boycott and attend the meeting of the Leader of the Opposition.
