LAHORE/ISLAMABAD - Although no breakthrough could be achieved in Tuesday's meeting between PPP chief Asif Ali Zardari and PML-N Quaid, Mian Nawaz Sharif, with regard to the reinstatement of deposed judges and other contentious issues, the coalition partners agreed to continue parleys for another day (today), and to take other allies on board regarding the points over which consensus is desired to be evolved. The two leaders will meet again today at 1 pm to thrash out modalities to resolve all issues plaguing the coalition at the moment. Asif Ali Zardari has postponed his scheduled visit to China for one day, which means that both partners were sincere and wanted to make the negotiations successful. Mian Shahbaz Sharif, Chaudhry Nisar, Javed Hashmi, Khawaja Asif and Ishaq Dar attended the meeting from PML-N side, while Raza Rabbani, Khurshid Shah, Jehangir Badr, Information Minister Sherry Rehman, Minister for Northern Areas and Kashmir Affairs, Qamar Zaman Kaira and Federal Minister for Law Farooq H Naek assisted Asif Ali Zardari. Later, Mian Nawaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari also held a one-on-one meeting. Contrary to the speculations in electronic media, the mood of the meeting was good, as the discussion took place in a cordial atmosphere. A PML-N stalwart, who was present in the meeting, told The Nation that Mr Zardari's attitude was positive. High-level sources, privy to the discussions, said that both sides showed seriousness to resolve the issues unlike their previous meetings, which could not go beyond mere photo opportunity. Besides, the leadership also showed its strong will to keep the coalition intact as far as possible. The Tuesday parleys touched upon all issues in general terms, while specifics would be discussed in today's meeting when the coalition partners meet again afternoon. However, other sources confided to The Nation that had there been no progress on the judges' issue in today's parleys, the PML-N would have no recourse, but to walk out of the coalition. In another significant development, it was decided for the first time to bring other coalition partners on board regarding the discussions going on between the PPP and the PML-N. Chief of JUI (F), Maulana Fazlur Rehman would also take part in discussions on Wednesday (today). As far as ANP Chief Asfandyar Wali is concerned, who is presently in Karachi to look after one of his ailing relatives there, the two leaders have dispatched a high-level delegation comprising on senior leaders from both sides to Karachi to apprise him of the points under discussion and to know his view in this regard. Hence after the meeting was over, Punjab CM Shahbaz Sharif along with Khawaja Asif (PML-N), Khurshid Shah (PPP) and Sherry Rehman (PPP) flew to Karachi on a special flight to take Asfandyar Wali into confidence over the discussions, and to seek his viewpoint on the contentious issues including reinstatement of deposed judges as per Murree Declaration, impeachment of President Musharraf and restoration of 1973 Constitution. This delegation is scheduled to arrive back on Wednesday (today) morning after getting feedback from Asfandyar on these issues. As per PPP sources, Asfandyar may attend today's meeting if he found it convenient to travel to Islamabad. A PPP delegation headed by PPP leader Mian Raza Rabbani is likely to meet with JUI-F leader Maulana Fazlur Rehman, whose participation is also expected in the discussions today. JUI-F spokesman Maulana Amjad confirmed that Nawaz Sharif and Asif Zardari contacted Maulana Fazlur Rehman on telephone and informed him about the points discussed in the meeting. The joint decision by PPP and PML-N leaders to take all coalition partners into confidence over discussions going on between the two sides shows leaderships' seriousness to resolve all issues, including the restoration of judges. PPP spokesperson, Farhatullah Babar, told reporters after meeting that other coalition partners - ANP, JUI-F and FATA representatives - would also join today's talks. Meanwhile, Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting, Sherry Rehman termed the meeting 'very positive and cordial.' Talking to a private channel, she said agenda of the meeting was to evolve a joint strategy on national issues. She said, the meeting would be held again on Wednesday (today), while consultation process with other coalition partners was also underway to take their suggestions and input. PML-N leader Khawaja Asif also said that there was broad consensus on important issues. "The talks did not fail. There are more chances of 'make' than 'break'", he observed. Meanwhile, PML-N and PPP have finally managed to break the impasse in the dialogue but the focus of negotiations has shifted from the issue of the restoration of the judges to the impeachment of President Musharraf, on which both the parties were in the process of evolving a consensus. The PML(N) team lead by its Quaid, Mian Nawaz Sharif, arrived at Zardari House at 2.15pm and remained there till 8.00 in the evening where both sides had three sessions with a one-on-one session between Mian Nawaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari. One of the leader who had attended the meeting, disclosed to The Nation that as usual it was the one-on-one meeting between Mian Nawaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari which had played magic again and the breakthrough was made in the negotiations, which had stalled many a times in past four months. Information Minister Sherry Rehman described the meeting as 'positive and cordial' and said the meeting would be reconvened after consulting other coalition partners. "Consensus is being developed," she added. Sources privy to the deliberations of the meeting disclosed to The Nation that the two sides had decided to put the judges issue on the backburner for the time being and agreed to go about the impeachment of President Pervez Musharraf first, as in this way the PML(N) would also have a face-saving. The source in Pakistan Peoples Party disclosed that party Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari was not against the impeachment of President Musharraf but he wanted to give time to President to call it a day just to avoid confrontation and develop bad taste with Establishment. The sources further disclosed that PML(N) had shown flexibility in the parleys and asked the PPP side that in case they have reservations regarding restoration of judges through an executive order then they should at least come up with impeachment of President Musharraf, which, according to them, was the only way to arrest the fast deteriorating image of the coalition government in the eyes of the public. It was further disclosed that the modalities of going about impeachment of President Musharraf would be finalized in the Wednesday meeting and it was likely that the coalition partners would come up with some 'unambiguous' roadmap in this regard. The sources in the coalition government disclosed that the PML(N) side had taken a very harsh stand against the President Musharraf and termed him the root cause of all the problems in the way of smooth functioning of the government. PML(N) side had asked the PPP that if they were not ready to restore the judges through an executive order then they should join them in impeaching the President Musharraf so that they could justify their presence in the four-party alliance. The sources further disclosed that in case the coalition partners would come out with some definite impeachment plan, then the PML(N) would rejoin the federal cabinet and would agree to the restoration of judges through the constitutional package which would be tabled before the Parliament at some later stage. In between the negotiations with the PML(N) PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari had also a brief chat with the Chinese Ambassador who called on him, probably regarding his upcoming visit to China, which he had put off keeping in view the hectic activities back home in coming days. According to PPPP spokesman Farahatullah Babar, instead of Asif Ali Zardari the party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari is to visit China to attend the inaugural ceremony of Olympics Games. After the negotiations, Mian Nawaz Sharif left for his Murree residence while Asif Ali Zardari went to Prime Minister House where he had post-dinner meeting with Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani. MONITORING DESK adds: PPP has prepared a draft for the impeachment of President Pervez Musharraf, which would be presented to PML-N chief Mian Nawaz Sharif during his meeting today with Asif Ali Zardari. According to well-placed sources, PPP Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari held a meeting with Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani at the PM House to finalise the draft. Federal Law Minister, Farooq H Naek was also present on the occasion. The government has also obtained the consent of ANP chief Asfandyar Wali and JUI leader Maulana Fazalur Rehman on the draft, sources said and added that a resolution for Musharraf's impeachment would be tabled in the upcoming session of the National Assembly. Meanwhile, a delegation headed by CM Punjab Shahbaz Sharif called on ANP leader Asfandyar Wali at Mardan House in Karachi late on Tuesday night. Addressing a Press conference after the meeting, the ANP leader said that he would send senior party leaders to attend today's meeting in Islamabad. To a question, he said that decision about Musharraf's impeachment has yet to be taken and he couldn't say anything at this stage. He said that his party's stance would be put forth in the meeting.
