ISLAMABAD: A high-level meeting, chaired by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif at the PM House, on Tuesday decided that the premier will neither submit his resignation nor dissolve the assemblies, reported sources close to the matter.
The meeting was called earlier today to chart the government’s strategy following submission of the final report to the apex court by the Joint Investigation Team (JIT).
Nawaz, during the meeting, was also advised to move the Supreme Court against the JIT report before July 17, added sources.
Sources also said the premier has instructed his legal team to approach the apex court and prepare the government’s potential reply over the JIT report.
The prime minister was also briefed in detail regarding the legal aspects of the JIT report.
The meeting at the PM House was attended by the premier’s brother Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif, daughter Maryam Nawaz, other senior ministers and legal experts.
A similar meeting was held yesterday by the prime minister after the report was submitted to the Supreme Court.
The JIT, in its final probe report into the Sharif family’s assets, held that the prime minister and his three children — Maryam, Hussain and Hasan — have accumulated wealth beyond their own known sources of income.
