Islamabad, May 9 (ANI): Senior minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Friday ruled out extension of the May 12 deadline for restoration of deposed judges.

We want the restoration of deposed judges on pre-November 3 positions by May 12 and shall not accept any bid to be confused in legal complications, he told newsmen outside the parliament house.

Otherwise PML would act as it should, the Dawn quoted him, as warning.

Nisar said he PML-N has summoned parliamentary party meeting on May 12 to ensure the presence of all MNAs during the possible session of the National Assembly to pass a resolution for restoration of deposed judges.

Meanwhile, Pakistan Peoples Party co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari, who is presently in London, has reiterated that no differences exist between his party and the PML-N on the judges restoration issue.

Zardari, who was accompanied by the Prime Ministers Advisor on Interior Affairs, Rehman Malik, is in the British capital for what is being termed as the final round of talks with PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif on the issue.

PML-N president Shahbaz Sharif and federal Minister for Petroleum and Natural Resources Khwaja Asif also travelled on the same aircraft. They are here to assist Nawaz Sharif in the talks.

Informed sources said that substantive talks would be held today.

Rehman Malik called on MQM leader Altaf Hussain and reportedly discussed modalities for a meeting between the latter and Zardari.

Zardari is also likely to meet his son Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, the chairman of the PPP. (ANI)
