In a brief press talk at Parliament House on Saturday, Asif Zardari said that they want their friends to be accommodated first.  

When asked if he wants to put all the burden on Shehbaz Sharif, he said that there is no such thing. “We want friends to be given a chance.”

At the same time, the PPP has also invited applications from candidates for the National Assembly and provincial assemblies for the forthcoming general election.

After Zardari’s press talk, senior leaders of the PPP started explaining his remarks and said he did not mean that the PPP was not joining the cabinet. 

A senior PPP leader, on the condition of anonymity, said that the PPP wanted to fulfill promises and agreements that it had made with coalition partners, then it would join the cabinet.

Sources said the PPP, in a meeting with the PML-N, had finalized names for the cabinet.
