According to PML-Q President Chaudhry Shujaat Husain, reports that the Chaudhry family and the party were divided over whether or not to remain in the PTI coalition were false and unfounded.
They are the head of the family, and I fully back them in making all of their political decisions in collaboration with me. They are the head of the family. This is something that both our immediate family and the rest of the group are aware of. As soon as we made the decision to stay in the partnership, rumours started to fly,” he said. Those hoping to gain political advantage from the spread of rumours about problems within our family will be disappointed, as will their supporters.
According to Marriyum Aurangzeb, the secretary of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Mr Elahi’s assertion concerning Maryam Nawaz was untrue. It is not correct to assert that Maryam Nawaz is the victim of Parvez Elahi’s defamation. As a result of their joint efforts, the PML-Q has decided to accept an offer from the government. According to Ms. Aurangzeb, this decision was taken exclusively for personal reasons and had nothing to do with any comments made by Maryam Nawaz that were incorrectly ascribed to her.
Federal Minister for National Food Security Syed Fakhar Imam, on the other hand, has disputed that he has resigned from his position.. To quote him, “Reports of my quitting and joining PMLN are completely baseless.”
The Nominee of the Opposition for the Chief Minister
Following the realisation that the Chaudhrys would not be departing from the government, the opposition started putting together a list of potential candidates to challenge Mr Elahi’s leadership.
One of the party’s leaders said that “we’re now in discussions with the Tareen group, and we’ll come up with a candidate jointly.“
According to reports, Awn Chaudhry, the president of the Tareen group, and Sardar Ayaz Sadiq of the PML-N and Fawad Chaudhry of the PTI met with him on Tuesday to solicit their support for the no-confidence motion and the appointment of the new chief minister.
As a result, the group’s demand that the prime minister step down in order to replace Usman Buzdar was granted, and Fawad informed Awn that the prime minister had agreed to their request.
Meanwhile, a conference was held in Lahore by the Tareen group to discuss whether or not to endorse Mr Elahi’s candidacy. Mr. Tareen, who is now undergoing treatment in London, will, according to the statement, make the final decision in the matter.
The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPPJaved )’s Latif told a private television station that the united opposition’s nomination for provincial chief minister may be PPP leader Hamza Shehbaz or unsatisfied PTI MPA Aleem Khan, according to a report by a private television station. As it turned out, Aleem’s claims of support from 30-40 members of Parliament were a “hoax,” as he was unable to identify a single member of Parliament to back him up.
In the 371-member Punjab Assembly, the PML-N has 165 members, the PPP seven, the PML-Q ten, and perhaps 20 members of the dissatisfied Tareen group.
Asif Ali Zardari Statement
In the opinion of former president Zardari, Mr Elahi was unable to be elected as chief minister because “the vital numbers” were in favour of the opposition party. In response to Moonis Elahi’s pleadings, the PML-Q leadership endorsed the PTI partnership, according to Rana Sanaullah, the Pakistan People’s Party’s provincial president for Punjab (PPP). The PML-Q had been given the job of chief minister by the opposition, but the party chose to stay in the coalition instead.
Six PML-N members of parliament, led by Jalil Sharaqpuri, have broken ranks and proclaimed their support for Mr. Elahi as temporary prime minister.
Buzdar’s Resignation and Commitment
The departure of Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar is another event, since he is expected to stay in office until the outcome of the no-confidence vote against the prime minister.
The resignation of Buzdar has not yet been accepted by the governor. According to a source close to the administration, as a consequence of the no-confidence vote against the prime minister, the administration does not want to arrange a session within two to three days.
Meanwhile, Buzdar said that if his resignation is accepted, he would step down, but he also stated that he will remain behind the prime minister in the benefit of the country as a whole.
“I care more about the well-being of my nation than I do for my own,” he said in a series of tweets, citing the basic fact that ministries and positions don’t last very long.
His commitment to Prime Minister Khan’s vow to the nation for a new Pakistan has been stated, and he has said that he would continue to do so. “Party loyalty and patriotism will always be important,” says the author.
