The government and Pakistan People’s Party, during a meeting here on Wednesday, failed to reach consensus over a two-year extension for military courts.
Despite being the fifth meeting discussing the draft bill on an extension in military courts, an impasse between the two parties persists.
“There has been no progress so far, and we have not come to a consensus regarding the draft bill yet,” said Senator Aitzaz Ahsan who was heading a four-member PPP team comprising Farooq Naek, Sherry Rehman and Naveed Qamar.
Finance Minister Ishaq Dar and Law Minister Zahid Hamid represented the government, whereas National Assembly Speaker Ayaz Sadiq facilitated the talks.
Ahsan told the press after the meeting, “We believe there is no chance that we will meet again with the government to negotiate our proposals.”
