PML-N refuses to vote for Aitzaz as opposition’s presidential candidate
Chairing a meeting of the party in Lahore, PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif rejected Aitzaz Ahsan as opposition’s candidate for president and said that the PPP did not take PML-N into confidence over the matter.
Aitzaz was at the forefront to divide opposition during the 2014 sit-in protest by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) against then PML-N government, he said, adding that party will place their own candidate for the race if no consensus is reached with PPP.
It was further decided that presidential candidate would be nominated after consensus and through opposition Alliance. If the PPP fails to develop consensus over it, PML-N will nominate Abdul Qadir Baloch for the slot.
