The Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-F (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Thursday announced that the JUI-F would now sit on the Opposition benches in the National Assembly,  source said.

Fazlur Rehman said he would submit an application to Speaker National Assembly to get the seats allotted on the said benches.

Moreover, another report said the JUI-F was also considering parting ways with the provincial governments in Balochistan and Gilgit-Baltistan.

The JUI-F had first announced its decision to part ways with the PPP-led coalition government after Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani sacked JUI-F member and Minister for Science and Technology Azam Khan Swati from the federal cabinet.
