PESHAWAR, 14 July: Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Syed Khursheed Shah has called a meeting of opposition parties today (Friday) to devise strategy to pressurise Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to tender resignation after report of the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) probing Panama Papers case in the Supreme Court.

The meeting will be attended by leaders from the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q), Jamaat-e-Islami (JI), Awami National Party (ANP), Qaumi Watan Party (QWP) and FATA parliamentarians. The meeting will be held at the chamber of the opposition leader.

Main opposition parties have come out with different stances after the JIT report in the Supreme Court. The PPP says the prime minister should resign, while the PTI is demanding dissolution of the assemblies and snap elections. On the other hand, the ANP says seeking resignation from the prime minister will endanger democracy in the country.
