Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif has said a joint course of action will be announced by key opposition parties in the next few days.

Shehbaz Sharif made the remarks after a meeting with JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rahman at his Islamabad residence today (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.

Earlier in a day, An accountability court on Tuesday sought arguments on an application seeking to unfreeze assets of Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif and members of his family.

Admin Judge Jawadul Hassan directed lawyers representing the Opposition Leader to appear on next hearing on August 27 to put forth their arguments in the case.

Shehbaz stated in his plea that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) froze his family’s properties in utter disregard for the actual facts as assets can not be frozen during the process of investigation.

He requested the accountability court to review its verdict of allowing the national graft buster to freeze the assets.
