Khan is asking for immediate dissolution of assemblies and one resignation.Chirya ki khabar, discussions are still ongoing right now, and it's going to be a long night. But N is pretty adamant that they cannot budge from their position due to political compulsion. Budging now means they lose to IK.
But I do expect some middle ground to be reached by tomorrow morning, either for a date, or for an expected timeline for date announcement.
Rumors say that Miftah's return is being awaited. IMF deal will be agreed, govt goes home, and the caretaker setup does the prior actions. But N ab thori akar main agayi hai, and do not want to budge because politics, and actually want to see how things play out. If they survive this, then they have smooth sailing for the next year.
Some say they have a bit of tacit approval from the estab, but nothing concrete on that yet, and I find that unlikely due to multiple reasons.
IK also not budging, the reasons he has already told in the Arshad Sharif interview, and he is right. Maheena pehle he told the march date, to tab nhn yad aye muzakrat? Akhri din hi aye? He is losing political capital as well by constant delay, and he couldn't afford to any more.
PBA also putting out a statement against the raids.
This is very surprising to me. LHC bar, IHC bar, SCBA, PBA, all against the govt measures. Bodes well.
