ISLAMABAD: Opposition Leader Khursheed Shah remarked on Tuesday that Pakistan Peoples Party hasn’t closed the door on negotiating with other political parties, including that of Nawaz Sharif.
While speaking to Geo News, he remarked that he wants to take everyone forward together.
Over the caretaker setup, Shah said that he has informed the government that the name of the caretaker PM should be finalised by May 15.
“Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and I will collectively make the decision pertaining to the caretaker PM,” he shared.
He also said that he was holding discussions with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, however, when he contacted the party members there was no response.
He shared that he heard about the nominations put forward by PTI for the caretaker setup through media.
"What's the point of meeting them now? Although I am shocked at the names announced by them," he added.
The opposition leader said that there should be no restriction on the freedom of expression. If freedom of expression is curbed in a democratic state, then what difference will there be between democracy and dictatorship, he asked.
He added that freedom of expression should not be exercised against the governing institutions, adding that even the law doesn't permit it.
