  • Being an effective voice on climate change, PM Shehbaz has received this honour out of 195 countries.

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has been entrusted to Co-Chair the 27th UN Climate Change Conference of Parties (COP-27) along with the Egyptian President and Norwegian Prime Minister.

The premier has received this honour out of 195 countries, the statement released by the Prime Minister House said, adding that Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi has also invited PM Shehbaz to co-chair the COP-27 meeting.

Following the massive devastations caused by catastrophic floods in Pakistan, PM Shehbaz has raised the issue on several international platforms, including the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly and Shanghai Cooperation Organisation.

“Humbled by the invitation to co-chair the COP27 roundtable in Egypt next month,” the premier said, appreciating that the world is acknowledging the severity of the climate challenge that threatens to stunt our civilization and development.

“We need to turn this realisation into concrete action to combat climate change,” PM Shehbaz wrote on Twitter.

About 90 heads of state have confirmed attendance at November’s COP27 climate negotiations in Egypt where they will address issues, including energy transition and food security at opening sessions.

Egypt is taking over the presidency of the UN climate talks from Britain and will host the talks from November 6-18 in the Egyptian Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh.

PM Shehbaz is expected to hold bilateral meetings with world leaders, heads of state and heads of international financial institutions.

Topics for leaders’ roundtables to be held on November 7-8 would include the development of green hydrogen, water and food security, achieving a just energy transition towards renewables, and vulnerable communities.

Amid escalating tensions, Faisal Vawda forecasts the political demise of the PTI.

Political unrest is likely to approach, as Faisal Vawda noted that PTI will confront formidable obstacles.

Pakistan cannot support any anarchist party. According to Vawda, PTI must change into PTI-P in the same way as MQM becomes MQM-P.

In his critique of the PTI’s present political approach, he implied that the organization’s latest moves and catchphrases are the result of trust established by legal rulings. According to Vawda, PTI is now in a precarious position because these activities have put them over the constitutional line.

“PTI has been shouting anti-institutional slogans ten times ahead of the court order; they should be prepared for the bulldozer now,” Vawda remarked.

Furthermore, according to Vawda, it is improbable that PTI’s founder will be released from prison. Instead, PTI’s future will be determined by government policies and internal calculations.

He said that the intelligence to overthrow the government is within the Pakistan Democratic Movement II (PDM-2).

Furthermore, the senator charged that the government was misrepresenting PTI and the institutions and deliberately causing uncertainty.

He predicted that the political atmosphere would intensify and that the administration might not abide by the rulings of the Supreme Court, contributing to the situation’s complexity.
