Islamabad, Jan 30 (ANI): Pakistan Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani has ruled out reports of giving an extension in service to Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) chief Lieutenant-General Ahmad Shuja Pasha with an aim of 'improving matters' with the army.
"All these references (about granting of extension to DG ISI) are nothing but disinformation," the Prime Minister said following his return from Davos after attending the World Economic Forum there.
Regarding early elections, Gilani said consultations would be held with the coalition if the opposition talked through logic.
"It is up to the Prime Minister to decide whether the elections are to be held earlier than schedule or on time," The News quoted him, as saying.
He said by-polls would be held as per schedule, adding that the Election Commission had presented its standpoint before the Supreme Court, which had also come up with its explanation on the matter.
The Premier said negotiations would be held with the opposition on the 20th amendment of the Constitution.
"I respect Shahbaz Sharif and I will not be provoked by his statement about provision of security to Mansoor Ijaz," he said, adding that the matter was sub judice in the court. (ANI)
