Maryam Nawaz is open to dialogue with establishment if PTI goes

PML-N vice-president Maryam Nawaz has said that her party is open to dialogue with the military establishment “within the ambit of the Constitution” and provided that the incumbent PTI government is removed from office. 

“The army is my institution,” Maryam said in an interview with BBC Urdu. “We will definitely talk but within the ambit of the Constitution,” she said. 

The PML-N leader said she was not against state institutions but stressed that there would be no dialogue in secret. 

The “incumbent government will have to go if we are to move forward”, she added.

Maryam claimed that the “establishment had reached out to her close aides” but had not “contacted her directly”. 

She also said the idea of dialogue through the platform of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) can be deliberated upon.
