Bilawal says govts cannot be formed without PPP
Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that the federal, Punjab and Balochistan governments cannot be formed without his party.
The former foreign minister was speaking to Geo News on Saturday.
He said that PPP had representation in all the provinces, adding that it would be premature to say who is forming the government.
“We don’t know the whole count nor have independents announced their decisions,” Bilawal added.
He stressed that political consensus would be beneficial for the country as well as all political parties.
“The central executive committee of PPP had named me as the PM candidate but if we have to change that another meeting needs to be called and we will decide on how to move forward,” Bilawal added.
Moreover, he denied any official conversation with Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf or any other political parties on a possible coalition.
Bilawal also made it clear that no PTI-backed independent candidate had contacted him or any PPP leader so far. “We are in touch with some independents but no PTI-backed independent has contacted us so far,” he concluded.
