Pakistan to defer IMF-demanded sales tax: PM

Pakistan's prime minister said on Friday his government would defer a tax reform, demanded by the International Monetary Fund.

"We have deferred (the reformed general sales tax)," Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani said in Karachi on Friday after a meeting with officials from the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), its major coalition partner which just announced it would rejoin after defecting to the opposition on Jan. 2

"We will not go forward until consensus is evolved," Gilani said.
