Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi says a final meeting with leader of opposition in the National Assembly will be held today to find out a consensus candidate for the interim set up.
In an interview with a private news channel, he expressed his confidence that a decision to pick a suitable nominee is possible today.
The Prime Minister said it is a national issue which requires a careful selection, as the last experience was not good one.
However, he said if no consensus was developed then the issue would be referred to the parliamentary committee to take a decision in this regard.
The Prime Minister stressed the need to provide a level-playing field to all political parties in the upcoming elections.
