LONDON: The chances of separation between the two large ruling coalition partners are getting bigger, as the deadline for the judges restoration is nearing an end; however, the differences between Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) could not be done away with.
It is being expected that N-League would announce its separation tomorrow; however, PPP said it would not quit Punjab government.
PPP leader Hussain Haqqani said both the parties are at variance on modalities of judges restoration, adding the efforts are underway to remove the differences for which both the political parties will work in unison.
Even, US Assistant Secretary of State Richard Boucher could not work out any settlement between the two political parties on the issue.
The US Assistant Secretary of State held separate meetings with Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari in London; however, the differences between the two parties still exist, which has jeopardized the existence of ruling coalition.
There are chances that PML-N will part ways with the government, as PML-N President Shahbaz Sharif, answering a question, said the party’s parliamentary committee will be held tomorrow, where decision would be made regarding future course of action.
