ISLAMABAD: After PML-N’s Hamza Shahbaz claimed that his party will form the government in Punjab, PTI leader Naeemul Haque said that the PML-N will have to sit in opposition in the province as the PTI is confident of forming the government in Punjab.
Haque, while addressing a press conference, denied that his party had contacted the PPP for an alliance in the centre, adding that consultation with political parties was underway regarding formation of governments in Punjab and the centre.
The PML-N is the largest party in the province with 127 seats but PTI is following closely behind with 123, according to the latest tally.
The independents — 29 in the province — will play a key role in electing the chief minister. —INP
