Islamabad , Sept 2 (ANI): PPP Co-chairman and Presidential candidate Asif Ali Zardari has said that after becoming the country head following September 6 poll, he would change the system as his slain wife and former premier Benazir Bhutto and her father Zulfikar Ali Bhutto would have wanted to do.

He said he would take all political parties onboard and also convince some of his friends (read Nawaz Sharif) to acquire more political maturity.

We want to take all political forces along in our quest for national success We are supported in our efforts by almost all political parties except for some friends who need more political maturity, The News quoted him as saying.

Zardari has said his party faced the real test of coping with internal and external challenges after the presidential election. He was speaking at a dinner hosted by Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani at the PM House last night.

Without directly naming the PML-N, he said: We are waiting for our friends to understand the nature of politics which enabled us to send a general and a dictator home. I ask our friends to realise the gravity of the situation. Any misstep now will plunge the country into chaos and that would mean suffering for 180 million Pakistanis. (ANI)
