PPP Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari and JUI-F supremo Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman reached the residence of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif’s personnel residence in Model Town Lahore, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz President Shehbaz Sharif has convened meeting of coalition partners.

Punjab Chief Minister Hamza Shehbaz and federal ministers including information minister Maryam Aurenzaib, Khawaja Saad Rafique and Ayaz Saddiq also reached out for the meeting. 

PPP CEC last night deliberated on the post-by-elections scenario and announced that the coalition government should complete its tenure.

Earlier, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah presented a report to PM Shehbaz in a meeting in Lahore about the reasons for defeat in by-elections. 

Rana said that PMLN voters did not accept the PTI defectors and also PMLN leaders failed to convince voters to show up and vote for them on the polling day. 

PTI victory in the Punjab by-polls has changed the number game in the Punjab Assembly, with Chaudhry Pervez Elahi now almost having the required lawmakers' support to replace Hamza Shahbaz Sharif as the new chief minister of the province on July 22nd.

Almost all the turncoats who joined the PML-N and voted for Hamza Shahbaz Sharif lost to the PTI candidates. 

PTI’s strength in PA reached 188 whereas the figure of simple majority stands at 186 while the ruling coalition has 179 members.
