Lahore, Feb 21 (ANI): Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz chief Nawaz Sharif has said that his party could support a Pakistan Peoples Party Parliamentarians (PPPP) candidate for prime minister.

He said that the PPP has the highest number of seats in the National Assembly, and added that the prime ministerial slot was their prerogative.

Sharif said that a final decision on the candidate would be made with consensus among the allies, and his partys Central Working Committee would discuss the issue in a meeting on Thursday.

He said the independent candidates should support the democratic forces, and asked President Pervez Musharraf to resign after what he called the peoples verdict against dictatorship.

Sharif will meet PPP co-chairperson Asif Ali Zardari here today to discuss the formation of a new government.

According to sources, Zardari continued consultations with his party leaders on Wednesday and also met US officials. (ANI)
