PML-N, MQM agree to jointly form govt
KARACHI (92 News) - The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) have agreed to form the government jointly.
The decision was made during a meeting of the MQM delegation with the PML-N leaders. According to their demands, the MQM has sought PML-N Quaid Nawaz Sharif's mediatory role in normalizing relations between the PPP and the MQM.
Meanwhile, the MQM has demanded the slot of governorship in exchange for cooperation in the formation of the government. It also demanded that the MQM should be kept on board in the development projects launched by the Centre.
According to sources, Nawaz Sharif has given the MQM a positive reply.
On the other hand, the MQM has denied the reports about presenting demands to the PML-N leadership. The MQM spokesman said that they had not discussed the formation of the government. "We only discussed the stability of the country."
The MQM Rabita Committee and newly-elected members will hold a meeting to discuss the future strategy today. The newly-elected members will be taken into confidence over the talks with the PML-N leaders.
