Shujaat likely to meet Nawaz for ‘seat adjustment’ in elections

LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) has been eyeing ‘seat adjustment’ with the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) in the general election 2024, though a strong group in the latter is strongly opposed to the idea.

According to the party sources, the PML-Q is considering seat adjustment with the PML-N on more than two National Assembly and Punjab Assembly seats in Gujrat. It emerged that Chaudhry Shafay Hussain wants to contest the election on both MPA seats from Gujrat. PML-Q chief Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain is expected to meet former three-time prime minister Nawaz Sharif to discuss the ‘seat adjustment’.

It is to be noted that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s Parliamentary Board has already opposed seat adjustment with the PML-Q.

The general elections will be held on February 8, 2024, which was mutually agreed upon during a meeting between the chief election commissioner and the president of Pakistan on the directions of the Supreme Court.

On Monday evening, sources claimed that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) have agreed on a seat-to-seat adjustment formula after talks between Nawaz Sharif and Maulana Fazlur Rehman. The agreement was reportedly reached during a crucial meeting between Nawaz Sharif and JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman at the PML-N Secretariat in Lahore’s Model Town. The meeting was attended by prominent leaders from both parties.
