Lahore: President Arif Alvi offered to play his part in bringing politicians to the negotiating table on Friday, saying he was ready to speak to Prime Minister Sheikh Baz Sharif and PTI Chairman Imran Khan.
Arif Alvi told senior reporters at the Governor’s Palace that the political leadership should consider the current political and economic situation and should put down their egos and sit at the table to address these issues.
“President has a constitutional role and I am willing to play any role to mediate between political leaders,” he said, adding that he was ready to talk to Shehbaz Sharif and Imran Khan for the sake of nation.
“I will try to end the hostilities and create an atmosphere to hold elections as soon as possible,” he said. He further warned that any conflict between Centre and provinces could be dangerous.
