It condemned the confrontation between the government and the opposition, saying that such conflicts would further push back the issues of Khyber-Pakthunkhwa and harm the democratic process.

“Verdicts of the Supreme Court should not carry the potential to increase political instability,” said party leaders while advising politicians to play their role to prevent confrontation.

Furthermore, the core committee urged all political parties to work for mass mobilisation to attract maximum participation in the upcoming general elections.
