PTI decided to boycott Erdogan’s address to parliament
The decision was made by the “party leadership” at a meeting held at the residence of chairman Imran Khan in Banigala on Saturday.
Speaking to Dawn after the meeting, PTI vice chairman Shah Mehmood Qureshi said the party had decided it would not attend a joint session held under a “controversial” prime minister who was facing charges of corruption.
Mr Erdogan is scheduled to arrive in Pakistan for a two-day official visit next week. The government plans to convene a special joint sitting of parliament on Nov 17 so the Turkish president can address lawmakers.
