The PML-N and PPP’s most recent round of negotiations on the formation of a coalition government in Pakistan was inconclusive

ISLAMABAD Following a split election result, the senior leaders of the PML-N and the PPP could not agree on a power-sharing arrangement to form a coalition government in Pakistan, hence the most recent round of discussions between them ended inconclusively. Prominent members of both parties attended the meeting, which took place on Monday at the home of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) senior leader Senator Ishaq Dar in parliament lodges here.

The Express Tribune daily said on Tuesday that among the members of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) delegation were Murad Ali Shah, Qamar Zaman Kaira, Nadeem Afzal Chan, and others.
After the February 8 elections produced a hung Parliament, the PML-N and PPP coordination committees held five rounds of talks to break the impasse.

Following a three-hour discussion on Monday, the PML-N and PPP decided to call a temporary stop to the negotiation and agree to meet again at 10 p.m. on the same day. Nevertheless, the meeting was canceled.
The PML-N eventually adjourned at 11 p.m., declaring that talks with PPP will go back up on Wednesday.
Following the first session of the meeting, PML-N leader Azam Nazir Tarar spoke casually with media and expressed optimism about the direction of the continuing negotiations.
According to Tarar’s statement, “some things have already been decided on the matter of PPP’s inclusion in the cabinet,” Geo News said.

There have been several credible claims of extensive election tampering to change the outcome, making the general elections contentious. The party that will form the center-right administration remains unclear more than 11 days after the vote.
The PML-N and PPP have said that they would form a coalition government in the event that there is a hung parliament, despite the fact that independent candidates supported by imprisoned former prime minister Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party won the most seats in Parliament.
But even after many rounds of negotiations, PPP’s participation in the Cabinet was never decided.
On Monday, however, the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (Pakistan) vowed to back the PML-N.

In the 266-member National Assembly, a party has to win 133 of the 265 contested seats in order to establish a government.
Ninety-three National Assembly seats were gained by independent candidates in the election, the bulk of whom were supported by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party of former prime minister Imran Khan.

The PPP secured 54 seats, placing third, behind the PML-N’s 75 seats. Additionally, the Muttahida Qaumi Movement Pakistan (MQM-P) has promised to provide them its 17 seats of support.
Sindh governor and MQM-P leader Kamran Tessori said, “We stand united in the challenging task of government formation,” during a casual conversation with media. MQM-P has promised PML-N its utmost cooperation.”
