Sharif agrees delay on judge restoration
Sunday, 24 August 2008

Reuters, Islamabad - Former Pakistani prime minister Nawaz Sharif agreed on Friday to a debate in parliament next week on the restoration of judges deposed last year, putting back a deadline on a demand that could split the ruling coalition.

Sharif has been demanding that the judges former president Pervez Musharraf purged should be restored and had threatened to pull his party out of a coalition with the party of assassinated former prime minister Benazir Bhutto if that was not done by Friday.
