PPP, PMLN power-sharing term almost done
The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) continue to make progress in forming a collation government with terms being decided, GTV reported Monday.
Both parties, according to sources, have agreed to lead the setup for 2.5 years each of a five-year power-sharing term.
The development was made after their first official meeting in Lahore on Sunday.
The similar setup was formed in 2013, when PML and National Party shared power in Balochistan for the same number of years.
So far, the two political giants agreed in principle to cooperate for the country’s political stability following the general election.
The meeting was attended by PPP-Parliamentarian President Asif Ali Zardari, PPP Chairman Bilawal-Bhutto Zardari and former prime minister Shehbaz Sharif from the PML-N.
The leaders of both parties engaged in substantive discussions regarding the prevailing political landscape and the imperative of collaborative efforts for the betterment of the country.
Azam Nazir Tarar, Ayaz Sadiq, Ahsan Iqbal, Rana Tanvir, Khawaja Saad Rafique, Malik Ahmad Khan, Marriyum Aurangzeb, and Sheza Fatima were part of the PMLN delegation.
Both parties affirmed their dedication to steering Pakistan away from political instability and towards a path of prosperity and resilience.
