“We are discussing what to do,” the Daily Times quoted her, as saying.

Earlier, the PPP had reportedly proposed at least two people, including former judge Mukhtar Junejo, for the interim set up.

Meanwhile, Benazir has said that commenting on the possibility of alliance with the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) would be is “premature”

“The question about electoral adjustments with the Muttahida Qaumi Movement is premature,” she said in response to a question at a press conference at Bilawal House.

On the PPP’s relationship with President General Pervez Musharraf, she said it depended on the judgment of the Supreme Court about his candidature and powers he enjoys under Article 58 (2b) of the Constitution.

She emphasised the need for the establishment of the Election Commission in line with constitutional requirements.

Benazir said that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz chief Nawaz Sharif talked to her on telephone after the Karachi bombings during her homecoming rally on October 18.

Sharif condemned the attack, condoled the deaths and expressed sympathy with me, Benazir said, adding, “He is a political leader and we believe in the political process.” (ANI)
