ISLAMABAD: Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly, Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, on Tuesday claimed that his party held the key to the dissolution of assemblies, DawnNews reported.

Speaking to media representatives outside the Parliament House in Islamabad, the Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) leader said his party did not accept the agreement between the government with Tehrik-i-Minhajul Quran (TMQ) chief Dr Tahirul Qadri.

He added that the PML-N feared that attempts were being made to delay the general elections.

Nisar said the PML-N was in talks with several political parties over the formation of a caretaker set-up, adding that the talks had been going on for the past two months.

He said the talks over the caretaker set-up were about to reach their logical conclusion.

Nisar moreover said new provinces did not belong to 'some makhdoom' and would only be formed with the will of the people.

He said the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) and its allies were not interested in the creation of new provinces, adding that it was only an election issue for the PPP.

The PML-N leader added that the provinces would only be formed after the people of southern Punjab and Bahawalpur express their willingness for it.

Nisar said the PML-N was in favour of the formation of new provinces, adding that they would only be formed in accordance with the Constitution and not through sloganeering.
