“The government will reengage PTI in a dialogue after Dec 5 as we were in consultation with opposition leader Syed Khursheed Shah over the appointment of new Chief Election Commissioner”, said he talking to Samaa TV’s anchor extraordinaire Nadeem Malik during his titular talk show here.

To a question about the tentative success of the talks, Dar said, “Instead of ego it’s the wisdom that should prevail. Thus Imran Khan is requested to choose supreme national interest over self.”

The minister was confident that three names shortlisted for Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) chief would be unanimously finalized by Wednesday (December 3).

“The names of the candidates will also be submitted to the Speaker National Assembly for further proceeding under the Constitution. And hopefully the ECP hands will get their head by December 5,” he said.

Dar, who has been tasked with the resumption of a stalled dialogue with the PTI, urged Imran Khan to withdraw his protest calls announced on November 30.

He said, “Trade bodies had already rejected PTI calls for a shutdown.”

Replying to another query, the finance minister said the government had settled almost all the matters with the PTI in the last round of talks but the protesting party’s ‘authoritative plan’ for a Judicial Commission halted the entire process.
