ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The President Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Shahbaz Sharif has said that PML-N will abide by the decisions of the allied opposition, and vote for Syed Khursheed Shah in the election of the Speaker National Assembly.
Talking to media outside the Parliament House in Islamabad on Wednesday, Shahbaz Sharif said that the joint opposition made the alliance two weeks ago.
