Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) senior leader Pervaiz Rashid said that the party may support Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Aitzaz Ahsan for the president if he apologizes to former PM Nawaz Sharif.
Pervaiz Rashid said that PML-N may consider Aitzaz Ahsan for the post of president if he apologizes to Nawaz Sharif. He said it while addressing media outside the Adiala Jail. Pervaiz Rashid did not mention that why Aitzaz Ahsan should apologize to Nawaz Sharif. However, Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz, and Captain (retd) Safdar are in Adiala Jail as they’re convicted in the Avenfield Reference.
Pervaiz Rashid said that they are in talk with allied parties for the presidential election. He further added that PML-N has not decided yet about its presidential candidate.
Earlier, PPP nominated Aitzaz Ahsan for the president. However, PML-N further elaborated that he could not be considered as a joint opposition candidate.
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) already nominated Arif Alvi for the post of president. Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) scheduled the presidential election on September 4.
