(Karachi) As existing political tensions between the government and opposition parties intensify, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) have decided to resign from the National Assembly seats, local media reported on Tuesday.
As per details, the development is a result of repeated contacts between PML-N founder and former premier Nawaz Sharif and the PPP co-chairman and former president Asif Ali Zardari.
