Bilawal announces Zardari to be President & will not take ministries

He vowed to uphold the sanctity of the electoral process in Sindh, emphasizing adherence to legal protocols in government formation.

The Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has pledged its backing to the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) in the process of government formation and the selection of the next prime minister, under the condition that it receives pivotal constitutional positions, notably the presidency. Additionally, the PPP has declared its intention to support the PML-N at the federal level without seeking ministerial positions within the federal cabinet.

During a rally in Thatta, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, without explicitly naming any party, affirmed the PPP’s commitment to align with those who have sought their electoral support. He emphasized the party’s decision to abstain from securing ministerial roles, prioritizing the welfare of the populace over personal gain and affirming their dedication to upholding democratic principles.

Bilawal announced that Asif Ali Zardari, the former president, would be the PPP’s nominee for the presidency, expressing confidence that Zardari’s leadership would quell political unrest and safeguard the unity of the nation.

Concerned about alleged rigging 

Addressing concerns amidst nationwide protests alleging electoral malpractice, Bilawal warned of potential protests should the integrity of democracy or the unity of the nation be jeopardized. He invoked historical instances of mass mobilization under the PPP’s banner and reaffirmed the party’s commitment to extinguishing political uncertainty across all provinces.

The PPP chairman underscored their intention to address grievances of alleged rigging through legal channels, but cautioned that if justice was not served, the party would resort to peaceful protests alongside the masses.
