LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) and Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) have agreed to assist each other in the upcoming general elections, PMLN Chief Nawaz Sharif announced on Monday.

Nawaz was speaking during a joint press conference with JUI-F Chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman in Lahore.

The PML-N chief further revealed that both the parties will constitute two committees which will decide on the collaboration.

Speaking about the all-parties conference (APC) scheduled for February 28, Nawaz said his party will attend the conference.

He said peace is needed for prosperity and that all parties should come together to take Pakistan out of the current crisis.

While speaking about the interim setup, the PML-N chief said that the caretaker government should be based on consensus.

“No one should have reservations on the setup; all parties must be consulted for this,” he said.

Accepting that complete consensus would not be possible, Nawaz said the majority of the stakeholders should be in agreement.

Rehman, while addressing the journalists, thanked Nawaz for meeting him and agreeing to attend the APC.

The JUI-F chief said he is sure that caretaker prime minister nominated by the PML-N will be in favour of the country.
