Chaudhry Nisar to hold press conference on Sunday

ISLAMABAD: Former Minister of Interior Chaudhry Nisar will hold a press conference on Sunday.

Nisar, on Saturday, announced that he will talk to the media at 5pm at Punjab House tomorrow.

Speculation runs rife that the former interior minister will discuss internal issues of his party, the Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) in tommorow’s press conference.

Sources close to the former minister and senior PML-N leader told that Nisar is likely to speak about the country’s political situation at large and PML-N’s internal party matters.

On July 27, Nisar held a much-awaited news conference that created confusion regarding his resignation following the Supreme Court verdict in the Panama Papers implementation case.

During the presser, Nisar stressed that he was adamant on taking an extreme step last night up till this morning.

Nisar said that after meeting friends in a meeting that lasted four-and-a-half hours yesterday, he was left with one solution, not to take that extreme measure.

“I know that taking a decision at this time could hurt the party leadership and government. But the day the decision comes whether it is in favour or against, I will resign from the ministry and membership of the National Assembly,” Nisar told reporters.

This statement by Nisar created confusion and later, required a clarification.
