Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Istehkam-e-Pakistan Party (IPP) have reportedly reached a consensus on seat adjustments on various National Assembly and provincial assembly seats, as per media reports.
Sources said that PML-N has agreed to support Jahangir Tareen-led IPP candidates in Lahore, Lodhran and Sahiwal.
PML-N will support IPP senior leader Aleem Khan on NA seat in Lahore and Nauman Langrial on NA Sahiwal seat, say sources, adding that the party will not field its candidate against IPP candidates Awn Chaudhry and Ishaq Khaqwani.
The development comes two days after PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif held a meeting with IPP patron-in-chief Jahangir Tareen at his residence in Lahore.
The meeting – which lasted for about 45 minutes – was attended by IPP leader Awn Chaudhry, PML-N leaders Ayaz Sadiq and Rana Sanaullah, sources added.
