Islamabad, Mar. 23 (ANI): Following Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raja Gilanis reconciliation meeting with PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif, the Shahbaz Sharif government in Punjab may be restored within a week, The News reported. The Pakistan Government will move the Supreme Court to grant a stay order against the earlier decision to disqualify the Sharif brothers on February 24. With the stay order most likely to be granted, the PML-N Government might be restored automatically without any requirement of new vote of confidence or election of a new leader of the house, sources said. PM Gilani told Nawaz Sharif that clear instructions had already been issued to the attorney general of Pakistan Latif Khosa to move an application in the court on behalf of federal government to stay the decision, The News quoted top sources, as saying. PM Gilani believes that once Shahbaz government is restored, rest of the issues would automatically be discussed and sorted out through mutual dialogue, sources claimed. Another highlight of Gilani-Sharif meeting was that PPP was finally ready to move a bill in the parliament to bring about changes in the controversial 17th amendment. (ANI)
