PML-N, Establishment Agree On In-House Change: Report
A senior lawmaker of Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) has claimed that PML-N and the establishment have been agreed to an in-house change, an agreement has been unofficially signed on all the issues except the question of the PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz’s return to mainstream politics.
According to the report published The Express Tribune, “PML-N is close to reaching a deal with the establishment. Once everything is finalized, the PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif would return to Pakistan to initiate the process of an in-house change. A national government excluding the ruling PTI would be formed, which after election reforms and stabilization of the economy would be dissolved to proceed for fresh elections,” the PML-N leader has revealed.
The leader further said the only thing that is yet to be decided is Maryam’s return to mainstream politics. “The establishment, apparently, does not like return of the father-daughter duo to politics as in the recent years they took a hard line on establishment. The Sharif family, however, wants Maryam Nawaz back in politics.
The leader said they have been conveyed that the kingmakers are finally done experimenting with Prime Minister Imran Khan. The coming month of March will bring the government closer to its end.
A PPP leader said their party is fully aware of the PML-N effort to re align itself with establishment. He said the party has a strategy in place but they cannot disclose it as yet.
Shehbaz has been in London since November when he left the country along with his elder brother and the PML-N supreme leader Nawaz Sharif, after the latter was granted bail on medical grounds and the permission to fly abroad for treatment.
