The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) continued to explore the possibility of having seat adjustment with likeminded forces in the upcoming general elections as it held talks with Istehkam-e-Pakistan Party (IPP) leadership, VOS reported on Friday.
As per media reports, PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif held a meeting with IPP patron-in-chief Jahangir Tareen a day earlier 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, they added.
The politicians exchanged views on the country’s political situation, upcoming general elections and seat adjustment.
Sources claimed that PML-N and IPP reached an agreement on seat adjustment in the general polls. A detailed discussion regarding the number of seats will be held in next meetings, they added.
It is pertinent to mention that PML-N was in talks with various political parties across the province for seat adjustments.
Earlier on Dec 6, PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif finally visited the residence of PML-Q chief Chaudhry Shujaat after a hiatus of nearly 15 years.
Sources said the two parties had discussed electoral alliance and seat adjustments on Gujrat seats. “PML-N has decided to support PML-Q candidates on 2 National Assembly and 3 provincial assembly seats,” say sources.
The PML-N supremo had succeeded in wooing the electables from Balochistan to join his party and also forged an electoral alliance with Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) in Sindh.
The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) had notified general elections on February 8, 2024.
According to details, the Election Commission issued a notification of the date of the general election under Section 57 of the Election Act۔
