PM Shehbaz-led delegation of PML-N to meet Nawaz Sharif in London

Islamabad (Web Desk): A delegation of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) led by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif will leave for London to meet former premier and party supremo Nawaz Sharif.

Addressing a press conference in Islamabad on Tuesday, Federal Minister for Information Marriyum Aurangzeb confirmed the reports of party leaders visit and said that PML-N members were going on a private visit to London to meet Nawaz Sharif.

As per the reports, PML-N leaders including Ahsan Iqbal, Marriyum Aurangzeb, Saad Rafique, Khurram Dastagir, and others will also accompany the premier during the visit.

According to sources, Nawaz Sharif had summoned an urgent meeting of the party's leadership in London.

"Nawaz has to consult the party leadership over some important issues he has reservations over and the PML-N is expected to make a "big decision", which is why he rejected the proposal to have an online meeting," the sources added.

They further said that during the meeting, a discussion regarding the strategy on the prices of petroleum products will be held with Nawaz and former finance minister Ishaq Dar.

The discussion holds special importance as a delegation of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) is expected to begin talks with Pakistani officials on May 18 in Doha.

The sources added that decisions regarding power-sharing, the next general election, and the Punjab cabinet will also be taken during the meeting.
