ISLAMABAD: Opposition party leaders gather to attend All Parties Conference in Islamabad on Wednesday. The joint opposition’s all parties conference (APC) called by Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman commenced in Islamabad on Wednesday, with political leaders aiming to formulate a strategy for a movement against the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government.

The Balochistan National Party (Mengal), which had been attending opposition meetings despite sitting on the treasury benches, decided against attending the APC on Wednesday.

In a written message sent to Maulana Fazlur Rehman, BNP-M chief Sardar Akhtar Mengal asked the opposition to consider his party’s recommendations. The Jamaat-i-Islami, which is sitting on the opposition benches, had already distanced itself from the APC.

Delegations of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), the Awami National Party (ANP), the Aftab Sherpao-led Qaumi Watan Party (QWP), the National Party and the Pashtunkhwa Milli Awami Party (PkMAP) are attending the conference.

The PML-N delegation was led by National Assembly Opposition leader Shehbaz Sharif and includes party vice-president Maryam Nawaz Sharif, former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Ayaz Sadiq and Ahsan Iqbal.

Former premier Yousuf Raza Gilani, ex-Senate chairman Raza Rabbani, Nayyar Bukhari, Sherry Rehman and Farhatullah Babar are representing the PPP. The party’s chairman, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, will also attend the event.
