political party which is unacceptable. The former prime minister tasked
Babar Awan to look after legal matters related to the ECP and directed
him to take legal and constitutional steps.

The meeting also discussed the upcoming by-polls on the 20 vacant seats
of the Punjab Assembly.

country soon as it is the only solution to the current turmoil.
