Asif Zardari likely to become president for second time

In a significant political development, a coalition government is set to form in Pakistan’s Centre, with the PPP and PML-N, alongside other political parties, coming together. Asif Ali Zardari is anticipated to assume the presidency for the second time. The alliance, comprising six parties including PML-N, PPP, MQMP, PML-Q, IPP, and BAP, made the announcement after a meeting of party leaders at the residence of PML-Q President Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain. Zardari confirmed the decision to form the government collectively during a press conference following the meeting. While PPP chief Bilawal Bhutto Zardari expressed support for PML-N’s prime ministerial candidate, he suggested Asif Ali Zardari for the presidency, citing his ability to address the country’s challenges. Additionally, PPP is eyeing the post of Balochistan chief minister. Sources indicate that PML-N has agreed to back Zardari for president in exchange for PPP’s support for Shehbaz Sharif as prime minister. However, PML-N’s Rana Sanaullah clarified that PPP did not specifically demand the presidency, emphasizing Shehbaz’s experience in coalition politics and Zardari’s political astuteness.
