islamabad-

The Central Shoora of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (Fazl) has failed to come up with some clear stance on sitting with PML-N on treasury benches and constituted a four-member committee headed by Abdul Ghafoor Haideri to finalise terms and conditions for their support to the future government.

Meanwhile, the spokesman of the party came up with categorical denial of putting some demands of ministries to PML-N for the support and said that it was too early to say something in this regard as the party has yet to decide on becoming part of the PML-N led government.

In the light of the interaction with the leaders of PML-N and the developments taking place on the political horizon of the country, the chances of JUI-F joining the PML-N government in centre seemed grim mainly because of the latter having a comfortable majority to form government in centre even without the support of any group or party.

These sources further said that in the given circumstances PML-N would not going to make any lucrative offer to JUI-F for joining them in government as well as the N-League would unlikely give any share to JUI-F in Balochistan because of the pressure coming from the other parties-National Party(NP) and Pakhtunkhawa Milli Awami Party (PkMP) - in the province which did not want any other party to be part of the Balochistan Government.

The sources further said that during the negotiations with Dr. Abdul Malik and Mahmood Khan Achakzai heads of NP and PkMP respectively the N-League leadership had given them tacit understanding that except independents which would likely join them in next couple of days they would not include any other party in the government to change the culture of political blackmailing in the province.

In Balochistan, PML-N, PkMP and NP collectively have 26 MPs and in case of inclusion of some eight independent MPAs in these parties they would have commanding position with the strength of 34 in the house of 51 and would not require the support of any other party like JUI-F which has six MPAs and PML-Q which has some five MPs in the house. It is interesting to note that the five Q-League MPAs had already announced their unconditional support to PML-N Parliamentary Leader in Balochistan Assembly Mir Sanaullah Zahri, who is also strong contender for the slot of Balochistan Chief Minister.

As the PML-N leadership had made it loud and clear on many occasion that they would have small cabinet at Federal and Punjab governments, so the chances of doling out priced ministries to the allies, which did not matter in the current number game, automatically reduced to a great extent.

On the other hand if PML-N would not give any share in power to JUI-F in Balochistan owing to the pressure from the other parties with whom support N-League is going to form coalition government in Quetta then it would place Fazlur Rehman in an awkward position to sit in opposition in Balochistan and part of government in centre.
