ISLAMABAD: Maulana Fazlur Rehman, chief of the Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F), on Monday confirmed he has submitted an application to Speaker National Assembly to sit on the opposition benches.
Speaking to media representatives in Islamabad, he said the JUI-F’s parliamentary secretaries in the National Assembly and Senate have also tendered their resignations.
The JUI-F pulled out of the PPP-led coalition government after Azam Swati, a federal minister from JUI-F, was sacked from the cabinet by Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani.
During the past few days, the PPP has attempted to win back Fazlur Rehman’s support. However, the JUI-F chief has refused to change his stance on the issue.?
