However, the formal announcement of the unanimous candidate for the prime minister’s position is anticipated after further discussions among allied political parties.

In a related development, PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif conveyed his appreciation to former President Asif Ali Zardari and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari for publicly declaring their support for the PML-N. Shehbaz Sharif expressed gratitude in a telephonic conversation with Zardari and Bilawal.

Through a post on a social media platform, Shehbaz Sharif conveyed, “I have thanked them [Asif Ali Zardari and Bilawal Bhutto] on behalf of PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif for announcing their support to the PML-N.” He expressed hope that the collaboration between PML-N and PPP would enable the two parties to jointly address and resolve the political and economic challenges facing the country.

This development marks a strategic alignment between PML-N and PPP, two significant political entities in Pakistan. The support announced by PPP adds a layer of complexity and potential strength to PML-N’s political maneuvers, especially as they aim to navigate the upcoming political landscape.

The collaborative efforts between PML-N and PPP, as suggested by Shehbaz Sharif, aim to steer the country away from political and economic crises. The intricacies of this alliance and the roles assigned to Shehbaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz indicate a coordinated approach to address the challenges at both the federal and provincial levels.

As political dynamics continue to unfold, the formal announcement of the chosen candidate for the prime minister’s office, along with the potential nomination of Maryam Nawaz for Punjab Chief Minister, will shape the trajectory of political developments in Pakistan. The collaboration between PML-N and PPP, with the backing of key figures like Shehbaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz, underscores a strategic effort to forge a united front capable of addressing the pressing issues facing the nation.
