Shehbaz Sharif Met With The Senior Brass Of The PPP
Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif met with the senior brass of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) hours after the Lahore High Court (LHC) issued a key ruling regarding the election of Punjab Chief Minister Hamza Shehbaz on Thursday. They discussed strategies for handling the situation.
According to the PM Office, former president Asif Ali Zardari and PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari visited the prime minister to discuss the present political climate. Senior PML-N leaders also attended the meeting.
LHC Ruling Was Examined
According to a PPP source, the LHC ruling was examined, and everyone present agreed that the vote of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) dissidents would not be counted in the recount of votes because the Constitution does not contain such a clause.
PPP, however, proclaimed its unwavering support for Hamza Shehbaz and believed that he would triumph once more in the re-count.
Mr. Zardari discussed the concerns of coalition partners and pushed the PM to address them. He is regarded as a “bonding factor” among allies in the ruling coalition.
The prime minister previously had separate meetings with the heads of several allies, including Aslam Bhootani, Chaudhry Salik Hussain of the PML-Q, and Khalid Magsi, leader of the Balochistan Awami Party (BAP).
