Nawaz Sharif telephones Fazlur Rehman to discuss unity govt


Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz supremo Nawaz Sharif on Monday telephoned Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl chief Mualana Fazlur Rehman to discuss matters related to the formation of a unity government. 

The General Elections 2024 brought a split mandate as not a single political party was in a position to form a government single-handedly.

Both the leaders discussed matters related to the formation of a unity government in Pakistan. The sources said the meeting between Nawaz Sharif and Fazlur Rehman is expected to take in the upcoming two days.

Earlier on Sunday, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan People s Party (PPP) discussed a power-sharing formula to bifurcate the prime minister s tenure between the two parties for the next five years.

The PML-N delegation led by Shehbaz Sharif reached PPP s office in Lahore where they were received by PPP leadership including Bilawal Bhutto, Asif Ali Zardari and others.

The sources close to the development revealed that during the meeting a suggestion was put forward that the PML-N and the PPP might get their respective nominee elected as the prime minister for two and a half years each.

“One party s nominee would be the prime minister for the first two and half years while another party s nominated member could get the prime minister slot for the next two and half years,” as per the suggestion, sources claimed.
