PPP to Support PML-N PM Candidate, Chooses Opposition Role in Centre

PM Candidate

In a significant political move, the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has chosen to endorse the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) candidate for the prime minister’s position. However, PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari clarified during a Tuesday news conference that despite this support, his party would not become a part of the federal government.

Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari announced the withdrawal of his candidacy for the prime minister’s post, citing that “the PPP doesn’t have the mandate to form the federal government.”

This decision follows days of consultations between the two major political parties in the country. The PPP’s move introduces a new dynamic in the political landscape, signaling a strategic alignment while maintaining a distinct role.

Meanwhile, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) asserted that the former ruling party, under the direction of its founder Imran Khan, intends to forge alliances to establish governments in both the Centre and Punjab.

PTI spokesperson Raoof Hasan, speaking to the media in Islamabad, stated that the party, guided by the former prime minister, rules out talks with the PML-N, PPP, and MQM-P. Instead, the PTI is directed to form a coalition with Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) concerning reserved seats.

The unfolding political scenario raises questions about the nature of alliances and power dynamics in the country, with parties strategically positioning themselves ahead of crucial political developments.

As the landscape evolves, these decisions are likely to impact the future trajectory of governance and political collaboration in Pakistan. Overall, PPP backs PML-N’s PM candidate but opts for opposition role, declining participation in Federal Government.
