The PPP found itself addressing internal discord as it handed a show-cause notice to its central leader and lawyer, Sardar Latif Khosa. The notice demands that Khosa justify his actions that evidently counter the party’s policy, specifically his representation of another political party’s head in ongoing corruption cases without prior consent from the PPP leadership. The situation escalates as Khosa faces the possibility of expulsion from the party if he fails to respond within a week. Adding to the tension, the notice arrived on the same day as the scheduled Central Executive Committee (CEC) meeting in Lahore, intensifying the focus on the conflicts within the party’s central leadership.
Upcoming CEC Meeting: Uncertain Attendance of Key Leaders
As the PPP gears up for the imminent CEC meeting, the attendance of some crucial members remains uncertain. Both Khosa and another prominent leader, Aitzaz Ahsan, have notably distanced themselves from the party due to their support towards PTI Chairman, Imran Khan, amidst his legal challenges.
Despite being invited to the meeting, Khosa is expected to abstain due to court engagements, as conveyed by his son Khurram Khosa. Meanwhile, the attendance of Ahsan hangs in the balance, with his decision to partake in the previous meeting remotely being overturned by the party chairman, Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari. The series of events underlines growing disagreements and challenges within the PPP, casting a shadow on the unity of its leadership.
