Zardari-Nawaz London talks inconclusiveMay 10th, 2008 - 1:23 pm ICT by admin
Lahore, May 10 (ANI): PML-L leader Nawaz Sharif has said that his talks with PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari to resolve the issue of restoration of Supreme Court judges ended inconclusively last evening in London.
He said that neither party reached any conclusion on the status of the Provisional Constitution Order (PCO) judges.
Addressing media after the second round of talks, the former Pakistan premier said that his party did not recognise the PCO judges as valid judges, and that it had accepted them for the sake of the coalition and the restoration of the sacked judges.
The two parties disagreed on whether the pre-November 2, 2007, judiciary should decide the fate of the PCO judges or whether a constitutional amendment should resolve the issue, the Daily Times quoted him as saying.
Sharif further said that the PPP needed more time to consider the issue and that his party the PML-N would wait until May 12 to reveal its future strategy. (ANI)
