Moreover, the revelation comes amid efforts by the opposition to submit a no-confidence motion against the Imran Khan government in Parliament.
Negotiations between the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) over a no-confidence motion against the present administration, according to sources, have come to an impasse.
They claimed that the PPP had communicated that it desired the conclusion of the legislative year after the in-house change, in contrast to the PML-N, which desired new elections to be called following the no-trust vote.
According to reports, the PML-N has urged that the PPP bring its nominee for prime minister if it wishes to complete the legislative year.
