WASHINGTON DC, 12th Feb.
According to news media reports on Sunday former president Asif Zardari has agreed to form a coalition government with the PML-N on the condition that his son Bilawal Bhutto will be the next Prime Minister of Pakistan.

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz President Shehbaz Sharif told the party leaders that former president Asif Zardari has demanded prime minister’s slot for his son and Pakistan Peoples Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and major ministerial portfolios, local media reported.

Shehbaz told the party leaders that Zardari offered, in exchange, the PPP would support the PML-N to make its government in the Punjab province.

PML-N sources said that Shehbaz Sharif met Asif Ali Zardari and Bilawal on Friday night and discussed the future coalition.

Party sources said that the PML-N leaders had discussed different options for making the future government in Centre as well as in Punjab province.

The sources claimed the PML-N leadership was in a shock as the election results were completely different from their expectations.

The News reported that Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz and other PML-N leaders were overconfident and the party leadership didn’t pay much attention to public rallies, door-to-door campaigns, mass public campaigns and direct contacts with voters on Election Day.

Party sources added that to form a coalition Government with Zardari was the first option the PML-N was exploring but didn’t want to give away the slot of prime minister.

Sources claimed the meeting decided that in case the negotiations with PPP failed, the PML-N would form a coalition government with MQM, JUI-F and other smaller parties.

They claimed that in this scenario, PML-N will make Shehbaz Sharif the prime minister and Maryam Nawaz the Chief Minister of Punjab province, the news media stated.
