ISLAMABAD: As the government struggles to ensure guarantees of attendance from all political parties for an All Parties Conference (APC), the Interior Ministry in a statement on Monday stating that the previously stated date of July 12 for the meeting, was not the final date, and that the APC could be held at a later date.

"It has been clarified that so far the date of holding the consultative conference of the leaders of national political parties has not been finalised."

The statement added that Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar was still  in the process of consulting all the political leaders to be invited.

"After the consultations are over, the Prime Minister will be contacted by the Interior Minister to finalise the timing of the meeting."

The final date will be decided after due deliberation and consensus among party members keeping in the mind the availability of the leaders.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had announced the date for the APC before embarking on his five-day tour of China.

In his attempts to invite national parties for the APC, Chaudhry Nisar had made contact with various parties, calling the Muttahida Qaumi Movement as recently as Sunday.
