PPP Co-Chairman Zardari Constitutes Committee To Initiate Talks Ahead Of Elections

The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), led by former President Asif Ali Zardari, would engage political parties and politicians for discussion both before and after the February 8 general election.

The announcement came after Zardari organized a committee comprised of members of his party to contact parties and politicians in order to encourage dialogue as the country prepares for general elections in 2024.

According to a PPP notification, the committee would include representatives from all four provinces. The committee would include PPP Secretary General Syed Nayyer Hussain Bukhari, Qamar Zaman Kaira, PPP Secretary Information Faisal Karim Kundi, Muhammad Ali Shah Bacha, and Sajid Toori.

Saeed Ghani and Syed Nasir Hussain Shah will represent Sindh, while Chengez Khan Jamali, Rozi Khan Kakar, and Sabir Ali Baloch will represent Balochistan.

The PPP co-chairman is recognized for his conciliatory politics and has advocated for a coalition government to benefit the country. He has constantly ruled out the creation of a single-party government, and this time, the senior politician is appealing to Pakistan's many political factions.

In a recent interview on Geo News' 'Capital Talk,' Zardari stated that it is not necessary for Nawaz Sharif, whose party claims he will become Prime Minister for the fourth time, to be at the forefront when it comes to forming a government.

Zardari expressed his "impressionism" towards PML-N President and former prime minister Shehbaz Sharif while praising the PDM-led coalition government. He also mentioned how "very difficult" the unity government's experience had been.

Zardari said, "Shehbaz Sharif impressed me. He would get up early, at 6 p.m., and start working at 8 a.m."

The PPP leader, however, said that the country suffered losses as a result of former PM Shehbaz's rejection of numerous of his ideas. As the PML-N had more parliamentary seats than his party, he said he did not want to put any pressure on the former prime minister.
