SUKKAR: Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif on Thursday said that the decision on resigning en masse from the national and provincial assemblies had not been finalised yet, DawnNews reported.

PML-N stalwart Khwaja Mohammad Asif had earlier said that the party’s leadership was considering the option of quitting the National Assembly and may take a decision to that effect within two months.

Speaking to media representatives here, Sharif said the party was deliberating on the resignation issue since long but no final conclusion had been drawn so far.

The decision would be made in the national interest and after considering the overall situation, he added.

He said the time had come for the people to say good bye to the current government.

In response to a question about Shah Mehmood Qureshi, he said that they had spoken and that they would soon hold a meeting.
