MQM-P Delegation Arrives in Lahore for Crucial Talks with PML-N on Government Formation

LAHORE: A delegation from the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM-P) has arrived in Lahore to hold discussions with the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leadership, ostensibly focusing on the potential formation of the government at the center. The MQM-P delegation includes Sindh Governor Kamran Tessori, convener Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, Mustafa Kamal, and Farooq Sattar.

The purpose of the meeting is to engage with PML-N leaders Nawaz Sharif and his younger brother Shehbaz Sharif to deliberate on the future course of action. This development occurs amid a series of meetings among leaders from various major political parties, seemingly aimed at garnering sufficient support to form governments at both the national and provincial levels.

Nawaz Sharif, in a pre-emptive victory speech before the official release of all election results by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), invited all political parties to collaborate in forming a government to address the challenges facing Pakistan. Acknowledging the complexity of holding frequent elections, he stressed the need for collective efforts to navigate the nation out of its current crisis.

As of the latest available results from 257 out of the total 265 National Assembly constituencies where elections were held, independent candidates have taken the lead with 102 seats overall. The PML-N and PPP secured 73 and 54 seats, respectively, positioning themselves to secure the majority of the 70 reserved seats for women and non-Muslims in the house.

Other notable outcomes include the Muttahida Qaumi Movement securing 17 seats, PML-Q with three, JUI-F and Istehkam-i-Pakistan Party (IPP) with three and two seats, respectively. Additionally, MWM and BNP each clinched one seat. The ongoing political developments and interactions among key parties suggest a dynamic landscape as they explore potential alliances and collaborations in the evolving post-election scenario.
