In a move that will pave the way for the Pakistan Muslim League-N to nominate their candidate in the election for the next chief minister of Punjab, the Pakistan People’s Party said they will not field a candidate in the election.
This was stated by former president and PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari on Wednesday.
In a statement, Zardari said that he does not see any difference between his son and PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and the Leader of the Opposition in the Punjab Assembly and the son of PM Shehbaz Sharif Hamza Shahbaz.
He said that after Pervez Elahi is removed from the post of chief minister of Punjab, the next chief minister of the province should be elected from the PML-N rather than the PPP.
Zardari explained that he would not like to select the next Punjab chief minister from his party because this seat deserves a candidate f rom the PML-N because it enjoys a majority across the province.
