ISLAMABAD: Peoples Party Co-Chair­man Asif Ali Zardari, who at present is in London, said on Monday that PTI’s decision to quit assemblies was not a good omen for the continuity of the democratic process.

In the light of Imran Khan’s announcements, PPP spokesman Farhatullah Babar quoted Mr Zardari as saying, the PPP had decided to hold consultations with other opposition political parties about further participation in parliamentary proceedings.
