ISLAMABAD: Maulana Fazlur Rehman, who heads the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), called on Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Thursday and assured him of “full support” on behalf of all parties in the ruling coalition over the political, judicial and economic impasse.
According to the Prime Minister’s Office, Maulana Rehman congratulated Shehbaz Sharif over passage of the suo motu powers bill by parliament this week.
The two leaders discussed the political and economic situation, with emphasis on elections to the Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa assemblies.
The two houses were dissolved by the PTI-led provincial governments in January to pressure the federal government into bringing forward the date for holding the general election, scheduled for October.
