ISLAMABAD: Most of the opposition parties, except two smaller groups, were convinced that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif would abdicate his office after the report submitted by the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) probing the Sharif family overseas assets, but the assemblies should complete their full term.

Opposition parties represented in parliament convened their first huddle after the report of six-member probe team constituted by the Supreme Court became public on July 10.
