The ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has decided to establish a parliamentary board in the buildup to the 2018 general elections.
A party meeting, which continued deliberations for four hours at Jati Umra, Lahore, decided to form a board for Senate and National Assembly with an aim to highlight the government’s performance in view of the forthcoming polls, Express News reported on Monday.
Those in attendance decided that the PML-N Sindh chapter will boost its contact with the masses and strengthen the party, but distance itself from ‘two political parties’ in Karachi.
It was also resolved that ousted premier Nawaz Sharif will begin his campaign to reach out to the masses at the divisional level of the province, and address countrywide public gatherings.
Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Speaker National Assembly Ayaz Sadiq, Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif, Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal, Governor Punjab Rafiq Rajwana, Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah and other representatives attended the meeting.
