Karachi, Mar 17 : The stalemate over who will be the next Prime Minister of Pakistan is likely to end soon, some PPP members said.
Former federal minister N D Khan of the PPP said, "Nothing is unusual if one keeps the present circumstances in view. The war of speculations on the suitable candidate will end soon."
"The next government will have to build a consensus before taking any decisions and the party cadres are united," The Daily Times quoted him, as saying.
"Makhdoom Amin Fahim is our senior leader and we all respect him. Zardari and Makhdoom would keep the PPP united and intact, "said the elderly Thaheem.
Thatta MPA Sassui Palijo said that PPP, PML-Q and MQM's co-chairman and vice chairmen are well aware of people's sentiments. They can never be convinced to join hands with the PMLQ-led former ruling coalition."
Senior PPP leader Nisar Khuhro has proposed that the candidacy for the top slot should be decided through consultation.
Senior members say that PPP needs the votes of the PML-N and the ANP to elect its PM candidate. Therefore, the person must be acceptable to coalition partners.
