PML-N, the leading opposition party was not taken aboard while signing the agreement. Hence, the tigers are now out putting forward their own list of demands. On the other hand, PPP believes that the opposition is only playing politics, ensuring their significance in the upcoming elections.
“Now when the government is all set to announce a date for the general election, the opposition parties have come up with a new set of demands which have no mention in the 20th Amendment that deals with selection of a caretaker set-up,” said a federal minister close to the PPP leadership.
He was making reference to the sit-in arranged by the PML-N leadership on Monday. Despite rumors that the plan has been called off, leaders, parliamentarians and workers of the PML-N, JI, JUI-F and other opposition parties recorded their protest in front of the Parliament House, Islamabad, demanding a more strong and transparent Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).
