Lahore, March 28 : Senior PML-Q leader Pervaiz Elahi has said that there was a perfect understanding between the PPP and President Pervez Musharraf to work together for the next five years, but PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif was planning to spoil the party to fulfil his vested interests.
Elahi, who lost the prime ministerial election to PPP's Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani, said that both the PPP and Musharraf were following the agreement reached between the two sides about a year ago as a result of talks in London and Dubai.
But, the PML-N was trying to throw spanners in the works and create a situation for fresh polls in about six months. However, the President and the PPP would jointly frustrate such plans, the Dawn quoted Elahi as saying last evening.
He further said that the PPP was being facilitated by the President in all respects and it was for this reason that although the PML-Q had emerged as the single largest party in Balochistan, the PPP was being asked to form a coalition there. "This means that everything is going according to the understanding between the PPP and the president," added the PML-Q leader.
Criticising the PML-N leadership for being on the path of confrontation with the President for its own interests, he said: "The PML-N leaders want another election within six months. They think they will win an absolute majority in the next election, defeating all other parties."
Pervaiz Elahi said the president had dropped all cases against the PPP leadership and facilitated their return to Pakistan because of the agreement between the two sides. He said the president was determined to work with the PPP-led coalition and strengthen the democratic system'.
Ruling out the possibility of the president stepping down under pressure from various parties, the PML-Q leader said demands for his resignation were being made for the past several years.
