PML-N Rejects Seat Adjustment with PPP, Setting the Stage for February 8 Battle

Seat Adjustment

The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has unequivocally declared its stance against forming a seat adjustment arrangement or alliance with the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) in the upcoming February 8 elections, as announced by a prominent party leader, Mian Javed Latif, on Tuesday.

Latif, known for his close association with PML-N’s Senior Vice President Maryam Nawaz, made this declaration during a press conference. His statement followed PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari’s anticipation of a coalition government formation after the impending elections, regardless of whether PML-N or another party led it.

In November of the previous year, Bilawal’s father and PPP Co-chairman, Asif Ali Zardari, had also predicted the emergence of a “national unity government” post-elections, citing the unlikelihood of any single party securing a two-thirds majority.

Latif emphasized that PML-N would not engage in seat adjustment with PPP at any level and indicated the party’s inclination to go solo in the upcoming Punjab polls. He praised the courts and called for punishments for those involved in the May 9 riots preceding the elections. These riots erupted nationwide after the arrest of the deposed prime minister in a £190 million settlement case, resulting in violence, attacks on military installations, and numerous arrests.

Latif further claimed that the incarcerated PTI founder was receiving preferential treatment and accused Imran Khan of threatening members of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).

The press conference highlighted the evolving political landscape, with PML-N affirming its independent electoral strategy amid past alliances and the anticipation of a coalition government in the aftermath of the February 8 elections.
