The one that proves support of the majority should form the government."

According to The Daily Times, PML-Q leaders Chaudhry Shujaat and Pervaiz Elahi have reportedly met Prime Minister Gilani and Zardari separately.

Both party leaders have worked on a formula under which the PPP would get a 60 percent and the PML-Q a 40 percent share in the provincial government.
