The communiqué said that the two parties’ agenda included completing the unfinished business left on the Charter of Democracy (CoD), as well as a discussion on the broad roadmap for future with consensus of all democratic forces.

It was also agreed that high-level summitry was needed to brainstorm the path ahead for a new charter.

The communiqué stated that immediate goals include repairing the rot across the board.

It said there was a strong realisation that the people of Pakistan had suffered greatly due to disastrous economic mismanagement and unprecedented incompetence of the PTI government, all of which needed to be addressed and repaired.

The communiqué’ said the joint goals would focus on reversing in phases the drastic economic slide that Imran Khan has taken the country down on, the terrible blunders and self-serving trade-offs on foreign policy, as well as healing the deep scars from assaults made on the country’s democratic system.
