The leaders of Pakistan’s coalition government are due to meet in Islamabad on Saturday to develop a strategy for the future. The meeting will be chaired by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif via video link from Lahore and will focus on the country’s political situation. Legal issues will be addressed by Law Minister Azam Nazer Tarar. The meeting takes place a day after the Supreme Court rejected a request from the Attorney General for Pakistan to set up a Full Court to hear petitions regarding delays to holding general elections in Punjab and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa. This issue has caused significant controversy, with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan saying that he is ready to hold talks with all stakeholders, but will not entertain “illegal and unconstitutional demands”. He emphasised that his party supports the Constitution and is committed to democracy. He stated that independent judiciary and free and fair elections are the only solutions to the current crisis. The meeting comes amid growing concerns over the delays in holding elections in Pakistan’s two main provinces, with many expressing fears that a delay could lead to political instability.
