In a bid to save the faltering economy, the premier on May 17 alongside allies decided to implement “tough decisions” to steer the country out of its current economic woes and ensure long-term sustainability, enabling the coalition to see through the remaining tenure of the government.

The meeting was chaired by PM Shehbaz and attended by heads of the coalition partners. The sources said that they finally agreed that bold decisions, even if they were unpopular, should be taken forthwith to steer the country out of the current political and economic crisis.

Subsequently, the premier on Saturday said that he was starting a process of consultation with all political stakeholders to build a consensus on the charter of economy.

In a tweet on Twitter, he said: “In 2018, as leader of the opposition, I proposed the idea of Charter of Economy which was ignored with disdain by the then government.”

“It is need of the hour now. We are starting a process of consultation with all political stakeholders to build consensus on the Charter,” he added.

In address to the nation a day earlier, the prime minister said the charter was imperative so that no government could use the economy for the sake of politics, adding that he will reach out to all political parties for dialogue on the matter.
