According to sources, he is expected to formally announce this decision after his meeting with PML-N chief Mian Nawaz Sharif today.


Raja Farooq Haider is expected to face a no-confidence motion tomorrow in the assembly. Resigning will enable him to constitutionally remain the acting prime minister for 14 days.


Political analysts believe it will give hime enough time to strike a new bargain with his opponents.


Raja Farooq Haider has hinted at establishing a PML-N chapter in Azad Kashmir after his faction broke away from the Muslim Conference headed by Sardar Attique Ahmad Khan.


An important meeting between Nawaz Sharif and Raja Farooq is expected at the Punjab House today in this regard.
