Islamabad, Dec 23 (ANI): Former Pakistan Railway Minister Rashid Ahmad has said that he does not see either Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairperson Benazir Bhutto or Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif becoming the Prime Minister for the third time.

Rashid further predicted that if the PPP and the PML-N were to secure many seats in the assembly, it would not be a big deal
“It would be a hung parliament which is to emerge after the polls. Every political party would play a significant role, even smaller political parties after joining hands with the mainstream entities would play a crucial role, particularly Maulana Fazl-Ur-Rehman.” The Nation quoted Rashid, as saying.
He went on to say that a hung parliament would pave the way for the eighteenth constitutional amendment, coupled with 58(2) B, which means the tenure of the parliament will be shorten.
The parliamentary elections in the country are scheduled to be held on January 8 next year. (ANI)
