ISLAMABAD: Pakistan People`s Party (PPP) was trying to form a "national reconciliation government" to steer the country out of crises and Pakistan Muslim League-Q (PML-Q) has agreed to the proposed power sharing formula.
According to the sources, PML-Q has been offered a Senior Minister, four federal ministers, eight ministers of state and UN ambassadorship.
The PPP was also in talks with old allies Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) and Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) to join the government. A proposal of seat adjustment in elections with the new partners was also on the cards.
Analysts were of the view that the real issue behind this exercise was to get the next budget through the Parliament.
Too woo the PML-Q, the investigation officer of the NICL scam was removed. Additional Director General FIA Zafar Qureshi was made Managing Director National Police Foundation.
