The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Nawaz Sharif is set to leave for Dubai to resolve the issue of deposed judges, local TV channel DAWN NEWS reported on Tuesday.
The reinstatement of deposed judges is a issue of Pakistan's survival and the deadline for their restoration will expire Wednesday, Sharif told reporters at the Lahore airport.
He said that the PML-N joined the coalition government in order to restore the judges. Sharif said he wanted the coalition to remain intact.
Sharif will fly to Dubai to meet Asif Ali Zardari, co-chairman of Pakistan People's Party (PPP) on Wednesday after a delegation of PML-N failed to reach an agreement with PPP on the restoration of judges on Tuesday.
Local TV channel Geo said that it could be the last dialogue between Zardari and Sharif who threatened to pull the PML-N ministers out of the federal cabinet.
The PPP and PML-N agreed in Murree of Rawalpindi in March to form a coalition government. According to the Murree declaration made by the two parties, the judges who were deposed after Nov. 3 last year would be restored within 30 days of the formation of the federal government through a parliamentary resolution.
Former Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry and other judges were sacked after Nov. 3 when President Pervez Musharraf declared a state of emergency in Pakistan.
The PPP insisted on bringing about a constitutional package to restore the deposed judges, according to which the tenure of chief justice will be limited. However, the PML-N preferred unconditional reinstatement of the judges.
