PML-N mulls leaving coalition

ISLAMABAD, Aug 25 (AFP): Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) is meeting Monday afternoon in Islamabad to decide whether to stay in the four-party coalition after the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) refused to give a timeframe for the deposed judges’ reinstatement, PML-N officials said.

“They (PPP) have unilaterally ended the basis of the coalition,” PML-N spokesman Ahsan Iqbal said.

“Nawaz Sharif will announce the future course of action at 06:00 p.m. after holding consultations with the party,” Iqbal said.
