Ex-PM says they just want PML-N tickets in next election
At least 12 PTI MNAs have assured PDM’s Senate candidate Yousuf Raza Gillani of their support in the March 3 Senate election if he convinces the PML-N to give them tickets in the next general election, PML-N sources told SAMAA TV Friday.
Gillani met PML-N leaders in Lahore on Thursday, according to the party sources. He told Maryam Nawaz that he could win the Senate seat if the PML-N considered the proposal.
The former prime minister is the opposition’s joint candidate from Islamabad in the Senate election.
Maryam has assured Gillani of her party’s help, the sources claimed.
PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif has already offered his party’s full support to PPP co-chairperson Asif Ali Zardari for Gillani’s bid in the Senate election.
He assured Zardari of his support in a telephone call between the two leaders a few days ago.
