The coalition of Pakistan People’s Party and the Pakistan Muslim League has now come it’s logical end and though it is not likely that the bitter and venomous politics of nineties would be witnessed, but the thing is that after the long shadows of dictatorship and controlled politics, Pakistan will witness new dimensions and new alignments.
Pakistan Muslim League-N Chief Nawaz Sharif has formally announced to part ways with the ruling coalition led by Pakistan Peoples Party and named Justice (R) Saeeduzzaman Siddiqui as presidential candidate of the party. The choice has come in the stark contrast with the PPP’s choice of senator Asif Ali Zardari, who is also their co-chairman of the party.
It seems that the PML-N has taken this decision after going through thorough deliberations and keeping all the recent developments into view, and it was bound to happen, and though it’s unfortunate but it was expected and one only hopes that it bids better for Pakistan in the short and long run, but both parties must avoid from confrontation.
PML-N should play a healthy opposition and PPP shouldn’t be destabilizing the Punjab government.
