Prime Minister Gilani accepts PML-N agenda
ISLAMABAD: Prime minister Yousuf Raza Gilani on Sunday called Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) Chief Nawaz Sharif, and accepted the PML-N’s agenda, bringing the three-day ultimatum to come to an end.
The PML-N’s deadline for the government to accept its demands was supposed to end on Monday.
The demands included that the government investigate corruption scandals, reduce non-development spending by one third, and set up an independent election body.
One of the demands, that a controversial fuel price hike be reversed, was already met by the government on Friday.
Sharif accepted the gesture by Gilani and termed it as political maturity.
PML-N Senator Ishaq Dar has been appointed as the head of the party’s monitoring committee which will check the PPP government’s delivery on PML-N’s demands.
