Zardari meets Shujaat in last-ditch effort to garner support for CM Punjab polls

PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari last night again met PML-Q chief Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain in a bid to woo him to support PML-N’s candidate Hamza Shahbaz, Geo News reported Thursday.

The political temperature in Punjab continued to mount as the clock ticks on the crucial Punjab assembly session for the chief minister’s election, taking place this afternoon.

A crucial session of the Punjab Assembly will be held at 4pm today (Friday) for the election of the Punjab CM. The clear victory of the PTI in the Punjab by-polls had turned around the number game in the Punjab Assembly, with Chaudhry Parvez Elahi now most likely to replace Hamza Shahbaz Sharif as the new chief minister of the province in the coming days.

Despite two earlier meetings with Chaudhry Shujaat, Zardari last night again visited Zahoor palace and stayed there for hours.
