Islamabad, Feb 21 (ANI): Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Vice-Chairman Makhdoom Amin Fahim has met Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) Shujaat Hussain to discuss the formation of a coalition government in Pakistan, sources have said. According to sources, there was little possibility of the PPP joining hands with the PML-N because of the latters clear position on the issue of sacked judges and resignation of President Musharraf.
A PPP source said they might arrive upon a compromise.
Shujaat Hussain further said his party would prefer to sit on the opposition benches, but a final decision would be taken at a meeting of the partys ticket holders on February 23 here.
According to the Daily Times, PML-N Senator Ishaq Dar said that his party was more interested in fulfilling its promises to its voters rather than forming a coalition government.
Meanwhile, Shujaat Hussain, PML-Q Punjab President Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi and Sindh Governor Dr. Ishratul Ebad met President Pervez Musharraf to discuss the post-election scenario. (ANI)
