No new opposition alliance in the making, says Maryam Nawaz

ISLAMABAD – PML-N Vice-President Maryam Nawaz said on Tuesday that Opposition parties are not going to form a new political alliance against the government, adding that the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) is intact.

She was talking to the media after attending a hearing of a case in the Islamabad High Court (IHC). She endorsed PML-N leader Khaqan Abbasi’s point of view about the return of the PPP in the PDM. Abbasi had said that the PPP will have to rebuild trust before it makes a comeback to the alliance that had weakened earlier this year due to conflict over Senate elections.

She further said that the PDM still awaits PPP’s clarification about its role in the Senate election, when the latter managed to get elected Yousaf Raza Gillani Opposition leader in the upper house of the parliament.

Replying to a question why she was not invited to the PDM dinner, hosted by her PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif on Monday, Maryam said Shehbaz had invited the parliamentary leaders in his capacity as Leaders of the Opposition in National Assembly.

“Since I am not a parliamentarian, therefore, I was not invited to the event,” she said.

Maryam said that they had the magical number in Punjab Assembly necessary to topple the government of Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar.

She also lashed out at the government over rising inflation and poverty in the country, adding that the PTI government had damaged the economy badly.

Talking about disgruntled leader of PML-N Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan’s return to the assembly, she said that the political bigwig is free to make his decisions about rejoining the party.
