Expressing concerns over the suggestion of the PPP and the JUI-F, former governor and PML-N leader Mohammad Zubair has said that Pervaiz Elahi cannot be the priority of his party for Punjab’s chief minister slot.

Two days ago, the PPP and the JUI-F had given the suggestion to offer the office to the ruling PTI’s ally the PML-Q in a bid to make a planned no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan a success.

The PML-Q had put forth a condition saying that they would stand beside the opposition in the Punjab and Centre for the no-confidence motion if Punjab’s highest portfolio is offered to Pervaiz Elahi.

Zubair told a private news channel on Friday night that it could not be the PML-N priority to hand over the office to Pervaiz Elahi, adding that, “still there are many things that are yet to be agreed upon.”

“Discussing the option of handing over CM Punjab portfolio to Pervaiz Elahi, doesn’t mean that the PML-N leadership has decided on this,” he said.

The former governor of Sindh went on to say that the PML-N and other opposition parties are united on one point and that is the ouster of PM Imran.

“Ousting the incumbent government is in the interest of the country and we [opposition parties] are completely agreed on it,” he added.

Responding to a question regarding Maryam Nawaz’s absence from the opposition party’s meeting, he said that she has been a part of all the meetings since day one as she is looking at every matter from behind the scenes.

“She was taken on board in every meeting of opposition and plays a key role in decision making while she is giving her input as well,” he added.

“Nawaz Sharif is overseeing the complete process as his decision is final and that is important,” he concluded.
