ISLAMABAD: A delegation of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) led by Syed Khursheed Shah called on former speaker National Assembly (NA) Ayaz Sadiq and requested support of Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) for PPP’s nominee for president Aitzaz Ahsan.
As per details garnered, PPP had also announced to support Shehbaz Sharif for the slot of opposition leader in the lower house of the parliament.
PPP’s delegation told Sadiq that they had penned letter to NA speaker Asad Qaiser stating support for Sharif Jr. The letter has been signed by PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto, Khursheed Shah and Raja Pervez Ashraf.
