ISLAMABAD: The National Assembly is resuming its session on Monday (today) evening for Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s long-awaited address in the house over Panama Papers leaks, Samaa reported.

The premier is expected to give a policy statement regarding investigation into the mega scandal. He is also likely to answer opposition’s six questions about his family’s alleged offshore companies.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif may also respond to Chief Justice of Pakistan’s refusal to form an inquiry commission on the issue, besides announcing some necessary steps to ensure a transparent probe.

On the other hand, opposition parties led by Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) have readied their strategy.

But revelations that PM’s arch-rival, PTI chief Imran Khan, had also set up an offshore company have eased some of the pressure that was mounting on the government in the aftermath of the Panama leaks.

Imran Khan will also attend the session where heated debates are expected over the scam.

The Prime Minister presented himself and his family for accountability and announced formation of Judicial Commission on the demand of the Opposition, but he is under tremendous pressure amid calls to step down.

Ahead of the session, parliamentary leaders of opposition parties will hold a meeting with PPP’s Senator Aitzaz Ahsan in chair.

The Senate will also resume its session at 4 pm today. Both the Houses will discuss important national issues besides carrying out legislative business. - Samaa
