Islamabad, 11 February (HS). The full results of Thursday’s elections in Pakistan have not been declared yet, but the army has supported Nawaz Sharif amid the possibility of a hung parliament. With this, bargaining has started for the coalition government. However, independent candidates supported by jailed former Prime Minister Imran Khan’s party Pakistan-Tehreek-e-Insaf have the highest numerical strength after performing brilliantly in the elections.

PML-N and PPP have intensified efforts for a coalition government and have started bargaining. Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif has told his party leaders that former President Asif Zardari has demanded the post of Prime Minister for Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari. PPP has agreed to form a coalition government if this condition is accepted. Shahbaz told party leaders that Zardari offered that in return the PPP would support the PML-N to form its government in Punjab.

According to reports, former Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif met former President Asif Ali Zardari and Bilawal on Friday night and discussed the future alliance. After this, during the day on Saturday, PML-N leaders discussed various options to form the future government at the Center as well as in Punjab. Shehbaz Sharif along with Senator Ishaq Dar, Khawaja Saad Rafiq, Sardar Ayaz Sadiq, Maryam Aurangzeb, Malik Muhammad Ahmed Khan, Senator Azam Nazir Tarar, Ataullah Tarar, Khawaja Imran Nazir and others have discussed the new circumstances.

According to reports, Army Chief General Asim Munir supported former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s call to form a coalition government in view of no party getting a clear majority in Pakistan’s general elections. Meanwhile, Caretaker Prime Minister Anwar-ul-Haq Kakar said that he is hopeful of forming a coalition government in the country. However, independent candidates supported by jailed former Prime Minister Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party have surprised everyone by winning 100 National Assembly seats in the elections.

According to the results declared by the Election Commission of Pakistan for 255 seats out of 265, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has won 73 seats, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) has won 54 seats and Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) has won 17 seats. . Small parties have won the other 11 seats. To form the government, any party will have to win 133 out of 265 seats in the National Assembly. The election on one seat was postponed after the death of a candidate. It is noteworthy that the army is considered very powerful in Pakistan. He has ruled for more than half of the last 75 years.
