PTI to review decision of boycott from joint session of parliament today

PTI will introduce special package for farmers: Imran Khan

ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) has decided to review its decision to boycott the joint session of the parliament following a request by the Turkish ambassador.
The request came as Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who is arriving here tomorrow on a two-day visit, is set to address the joint sitting of the Parliament.
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan has summoned today the meeting of the parliamentary party which would take a final decision on attending the joint session, PTI Vice-Chairman Shah Mehmood Qureshi. “We presented our point of view before the ambassador as to why we are boycotting the joint sitting of the parliament,” Qureshi said, adding that ambassador had requested the party to review its decision.
Erdogan has been invited by the President Mamnoon Hussain, who has summoned the joint sitting of the parliament on November 17 (Thursday).
The change in the PTI’s stance came following a meeting of the party’s senior leadership headed by Qureshi with the Turkish ambassador at the Turkish Embassy.
The PTI last Saturday had announced to boycott the joint session as well as the National Assembly session, saying it could not sit in these sessions under the leadership of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif who had become controversial in the wake of Panama Papers revelations.
