Further the prime minister has given his ministers responsibility to keep in contact with MQM and JUI-F leaders and to continue efforts to ensure that both parties withdraw their resolutions.
Because all political parties maintain their rights to represent the people of Pakistan in Parliament.

Except this PM Nawaz accepts all parties’ decision to de-seat PTI representatives. He is trying to convince them, highly rational decision and excellent move by PM.
