The PML-N is a ‘major party’ with representation in parliament and reconciliatory talks between the government and that party are continuing though no deal has been agreed upon, Aziz told reporters at the Governor House.

Commenting on former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s deportation, Aziz said Sharif went back because of his own arrangement with Saudi Arabia.

According to The Nation, he dispelled the impression that there was any crisis in the PML-Q with respect to selecting the Prime Ministerial candidate.

Claiming that there was no deal with the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), Aziz said his government is negotiating with all political parties who are represented in the national assembly, and the coalition parties.

“Do not consider talks as a deal, but political reconciliation”, he emphasised.

Talking about the probe into the October 18 assassination bid on former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, Aziz said it is in progress, and the investigators are closing in on.

The government will strengthen security arrangements, and put in place a code of conduct in consultation with the political parties.

He ruled out move by the Pakistan Government to ban political parties during election campaign.

Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Altaf Hussain, and the coalition partners have agreed to contest the election on single platform, Aziz claimed.

Replying to a question on the National Reconciliaton Ordinance, Aziz said that it aims to improve the political environment of the country.
