Maryam Nawaz has accepted Maulana Fazlur Rehman's invitation to attend APC: Marriyum AurangzebArchive
Maryam Nawaz, a vice president of the PML-N, has accepted the invitation to attend the All Parties Conference (APC) scheduled to be held on June 26, a statement on Sunday issued by party spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb said.
According to the statement, Maryam received a personal invitation over the telephone from Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman, who shall be hosting the event.
In May, during Ramazan, leaders of the opposition parties had announced their plans to "launch protests inside and outside the parliament after Eidul Fitr" and hold an APC to "chalk out a joint strategy on how to tackle the problems facing Pakistan".
The much-anticipated announcement for its date came late Saturday night in a statement issued by the JUI-F spokesperson.
Senior party members of the PPP, PML-N, Muttahida Majlis-i-Amal (MMA) and Awami National Party (ANP) are all expected to attend the conference.
The meeting shall be chaired by the JUI-F chief during which important decisions regarding the joint strategy shall be made, including a possible "lockdown" against the government, said the statement.
Among other items on the agenda will be a change in the Senate leadership and the passing of the recently presented budget for 2019-20.
Furthermore, it will be debated upon whether the opposition will accept the Commission of Inquiry formed by Prime Minister Imran Khan, for which the terms of reference were announced on Friday.
The venue for the conference is yet to be announced.
