Islamabad, Apr 5(ANI): Pakistan’s political scenario is likely to undergo a change in the years to come, if the Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) shifts from being a ‘friendly’ opposition to a ‘responsible’ one after the 18th Amendment Bill is approved.
According to reports, the PML-N’s major concern in the bill is the removal of the restriction on a third term as a premier.
Differences also cropped up between the coalition government over many issues, such as the reinstatement of judges and the federal cabinet formula, and the PML-N withdrew from the coalition and joined the judiciary’s campaign, The Daily Times reports.
PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif had ruled out joining the federal cabinet, saying his party has no intentions of joining the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) led government.
Denying reports of Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani asking him to join the cabinet and become a federal minister after the 17th amendment were abolished, Sharif had said the PML-N would continue to play the role of a ‘responsible’ opposition.
“After the 18th amendment bill is passed, the government should start concentrating on providing relief to the common man,” Sharif had said.(ANI)
