PML-N mulls over strategy regarding Elahi’s trust vote

The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) on Saturday deliberated on matters related to Punjab Chief Minister (CM) Parvez Elahi’s vote of confidence in the Punjab Assembly.

The PML-N leadership, in a session chaired by Prime Minister (PM) Shehbaz Sharif at his residence, looked into various options if an assembly session could not be convened on Jan 9 to decide Elahi’s fate as the CM. Federal Law Minister Azam Nazir Tarar briefed the PM on legal options that could be considered to take action against the CM if he failed to obtain the vote of confidence on the said date.

On the other hand, the session also discussed the formulation of a committee consisting of PML-N and PPP lawmakers and looked into possible candidates for the coveted slot if the CM failed to obtain vote of confidence.

Meanwhile, Shehbaz Sharif held a telephonic conversation with the Prime Minister of Kuwait Sheikh Ahmad Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah and discussed matters of mutual interest.

He apprised the Kuwaiti premier of the International Conference on Climate Resilient Pakistan, to be held in Geneva tomorrow, and requested high-level participation. The Kuwaiti PM expressed firm support for the initiatives to strengthen Pakistan’s climate resilience.
