PML-N and Q strike seat adjustment deal after Nawaz-Shujaat meeting

The meeting between the top leaders of Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan Muslim League Quaid (PML-Q) on Wednesday led to the agreement that a seat adjustment deal was reached between the two parties after former prime minister Nawaz Sharif met Chaudhry Shujaat for the first time in 15 years.

A major political development occurred during the 40-minute meeting between PML-N supremos and PML-Q supremos, where the two sides discussed whether it was possible to form an electoral alliance between the two parties, according to sources.

It was also decided at the meeting that separate committees would be formed to finalize things regarding the alliance. This was done by forming separate committees.

As a result, Shehbaz Sharif, the leader of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, as well as other PML-N leaders, such as Maryam Nawaz, Rana Sanaullah, Ayaz Sadiq, and Azam Nazeer Tarar, accompanied Nawaz to Shujaat’s residence in Lahore.

The meeting was also attended by PML-Q leaders Chaudhry Wajahat Hussain, Chaudhry Salik Hussain, and Shafay Hussain.

According to the sources, the two parties have agreed to adjust the seats in two National Assembly constituencies and three Punjab Assembly constituencies based on the results of the vote.

According to them, the parties will take part in seat adjustments in the constituencies of PML-Q leader Tariq Bashir Cheema and the constituency of Salik.

A province assembly constituency for Shafay is also included in the electoral agreement, according to sources.

In the meeting, Nawaz also inquired about the well-being of elderly politician Shujaat, who has served as the country’s prime minister during the past few years.

Despite this, no official statement was issued following the meeting.

It comes at a time when political activity is on the rise, as there are many parties running election campaigns and forging electoral alliances to strengthen their position during the election period.

A three-time former leader of the country, Nawaz Sharif, returned to the country in October this year after living in exile in London for nearly four years in an attempt to galvanize his supporters ahead of the general elections on February 8.

As a result of the PML-N chief’s return to the country, he has been able to achieve significant relief from the courts in respect of corruption cases that he believed had been filed to politically victimize him.

As he had done earlier, the ruling party had succeeded in luring Balochistan’s “electable” voters into their ranks by snatching away their votes, while at the same time forging a strategic alliance with the Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P).
