LAHORE A senior PML-Q Likeminded leader, who met with PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday, says there is a strong possibility of various PML factions contesting the next general elections as an alliance. Senator Salim Saifullah Khan, the president of the breakaway faction of what was once called the Kings party, said while talking to TheNation that his talks with the PML-N chief had been very successful. Now, he said, a meeting of the Muttahida Muslim League would be called during the next few days to decide the coalitions future course of action. The MML comprises the PML-Q Likeminded, PML (Functional), PML (Zia) and Awami Muslim League of Sheikh Rashid. Answering a question, Salim Saifullah said Mr Sharif had expressed reservations only about the Chaudhrys, as they had been very close to former president Pervez Musharraf. He said reports that the PML-N chief was opposed to Hamid Nasir Chattha, Khurshid Kasuri or any other leader were baseless. The leader from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, who has been part of many governments, said problems facing the country at present were very serious that only a united PML was in a position to solve them. He said the PML-N and the PML-Q Likeminded were working in close coordination with each other in the Senate and the National Assembly. Future contacts, he said, would bring the two sides closer. According to him, Hamid Nasir Chattha was supporting Ishaq Dar as opposition leader in the Senate.
