ISLAMABAD: The PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Saturday telephoned Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif and the two spoke about appointments to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) vacant posts, political issues and other matters.
Sources said Bilawal told Shehbaz that he was the opposition leader, and he must come out and mobilise people. Two seats of the ECP — one each from Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa — fell vacant due to the members retiring on July 26.
According to the PMLN, the two leaders discussed the ECP appointments and agreed that they will proceed forward together on the matter with consultations.
Meanwhile, the PPP, which also issued a statement following the meeting, said that the two, besides the appointment of the ECP members, also discussed the overall political situation in the country.
