IS­LAM­ABAD: PML-N Pres­i­dent and Leader of the Op­po­si­tion in the Na­tional Assem­bly She­hbaz Sharif has said a joint course of ac­tion will be an­nounced by key op­po­si­tion par­ties in the next few days. She­hbaz made the re­marks af­ter a meet­ing with JUI-F chief Maulana Fa­zlur Rah­man at his Is­lam­abad res­i­dence Tues­day.

"We will an­nounce a course of ac­tion in a few days," She­hbaz said while ad­dress­ing a press con­fer­ence along­side Fazl. "We had a good con­ver­sa­tion [with Fazl] and are in con­sen­sus. We will sit to­gether with other op­po­si­tion par­ties and take this con­sul­ta­tion ses­sion for­ward," he said

Fazl, adding to She­hbaz's re­marks, said that they had a good meet­ing and that the op­po­si­tion was well on their way to ar­riv­ing at a com­mon plat­form. "We had al­ready called a meet­ing of the smaller op­po­si­tion par­ties for to­day; how­ever, it was post­poned due to Mir Hasil Bizenjo's death. The meet­ing will now be held at a later date," he said.

He added that op­po­si­tion par­ties were firm on work­ing to­gether to­wards a joint strat­egy. "We want all the op­po­si­tion par­ties united on a joint strat­egy," Fazl said.
