ISLAMABAD: In a significant development amidst heightened political tensions, the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) and its allied parties have granted the right to Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif over the nomination of caretaker setup.
This crucial decision was made during a video conference coalition partners meeting, convened to deliberate on the caretaker setup.
Prominent political figures, including PDM chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman and heads of other allied parties, participated in the virtual meeting.
Sources said the premier chaired a meeting and allied parties wherein they reposed trust in him for finalisation of a name for the caretaker PM slot.
They said the prime minister could nominate any suitable person for the slot. The ruling coalition also asked him to hold consultation on the names recommended by the opposition leader for the position.
The discussions took place just a day after Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif hinted at the possibility of dissolving the National Assembly on August 9.
