Lahore: An important meeting between Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Supremo Nawaz Sharif and Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) Chief Chaudhary Shujaat Hussain was deferred for now, said the sources on Sunday.

Nawaz Sharif and Chaudhary Shujaat Hussain were due to meet today at the latter’s residence at Zahoor Elahi Road, in Lahore’s Gulberg area.

According to Chaudhary Shafeh Hussain, the meeting was deferred and it would take place in Islamabad between Shehbaz Sharif and  Chaudhary Shujaat Hussain.

The purpose of the meeting was to hold deliberations on the post-elections situation and formation of the next government, said the sources within the PML-N.

The political temperature is high as PML-N and PPP are very active to reach out to the political parties and winning candidates.

The independents backed by the PTI are ahead of the numbers of both PML-N and PPP in the national assembly.

The latest reports suggest that the Independents are 93 in NA followed by PML-N 74 candidates and PPP at the third with 54 candidates. 

The PTI claims it is ahead of all other parties and is able to make governments in KP, Punjab and in the center. 

On the other hand, the PML-N claims it is the single largest party in the country. Both PML-N and PTI have claimed to form governments. 

The sources said that the political maneuvers are underway, and therefore, a potential meeting scheduled between Mian Nawaz Sharif and Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain later today. 

The sources said that the PML-Q is ready to engage in governmental actions, fostering optimism for collaborative governance.

 The cordial relations persist among Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, Pakistan People's Party and Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid.

Despite no formal seat adjustment with the PMLN, the PML-Q underscores the stability of its relationship with key political counterparts. 

The sources said that Nawaz Sharif is poised to seek cooperation from Chaudhry Shujaat towards government formation, both at the federal and provincial levels.

Besides it, former President Asif Ali Zardari and Nawaz Sharif are set to convene, marking a pivotal moment in discussions surrounding government formation.
