After the stir surrounding the 2024 general elections and following outcomes settled, political alliances have started brewing with the likelihood of the formation of a coalition government in the country as Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) held a meeting, it emerged Sunday.

The two political parties that emerged as the second and third largest in terms of success in the February 8 elections discussed the prospects of forging an alliance to rule the country, in what was dubbed the first official contact between the two sides since the electoral process came to an end.

A delegation led by PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif met PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari and Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari at Bilawal House, Lahore, and sought their cooperation in forming the government, a joint statement issued by the parties read. 

In response, the PPP leadership told the PML-N leaders that the proposal will be discussed in the party’s Central Executive Committee (CEC) meeting, which is scheduled for Monday.
