While talking to media men here, PM’s Special Assistant said that there is no possibility of any midterm elections.

Naeemul Haq said that the government has realised that in the prevailing system, solutions of the public issues is not possible therefore to establish modified system Prime Minister Imran Khan is seeking cooperation of the opposition.

He added that the Speaker National Assembly has also assured the opposition’s cooperation in law making, after meeting with other political parties.

The government, he said, did not want any stumbling block in the country’s progress. That was why it was making efforts to take all the political parties along to address issues of national importance, as evident from the formation of some 38 standing committees of the National Assembly, 20 of them would be headed by the government members and 18 by those from the opposition, he added.
