It would be better if everybody agree on one of the three names we finalized” Even, PML-N’s Malik Ahmed Khan was satisfied with the PTI’s nominees.

Mr Chaudhry stated unequivocally that the PTI will simply return to the NA, gaining three slots in the process, but that the decision to do so yet to be made. Talking about toppling the federal government, Mr Chaudhry said, “If the government would not show seriousness in terms of talking about the electoral framework, then we will topple the PDM-led government.” He also claimed that most of the PML-N lawmakers were in contact with the PTI leadership.
