The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has clarified that the party has not indulged in seat adjustment discussions with Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) after the two parties agreed on jointly contesting upcoming elections.
Former minister and senior party leader Khawaja Saad Rafique gave these remarks while speaking to the media after a senior PML-N delegation including former National Assembly speaker Ayaz Sadiq and others visited the MQM-P’s Bahadurabad office in Karachi Sunday.
Earlier this week, both parties had announced their electoral alliance last week ahead of upcoming general elections set to be held on February 8 next year.
The development came after an MQM-P delegation comprising Convener Dr Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, Farooq Sattar and Syed Mustafa Kamal met PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif in Lahore at the party’s Model Town secretariat.
With the elections drawing closer, Sindh has become the epicentre of political realignments with former allies the PML-N, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam- Fazl (JUI-F) forging new alliances to strengthen their position in the upcoming polls.
