Sources said that a meeting was held between the two senior politicians
a few days ago, which was also attended by former premier Shehbaz

During the meeting, Maulana Fazl proposed formation of a coalition
government after the general elections, scheduled for February 8, 2024.

Meanwhile, former prime minister Shehbaz Sharif mentioned the JUI-F
chairman’s support in the 16-month government of Pakistan Democratic
Movement (PDM). “Will see when the time comes,” Nawaz Sharif responded
to the Fazl’s proposal.

On November 21, the PML-N supremo met Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazl (JUI-F)
chairman Maulana Fazlur Rehman at the latter’s residence in Islamabad.

On the occasion, Nawaz condoled Rehman over the demise of the latter’s
mother-in-law.

Following the meeting, Maulana Fazlur Rehman announced that both parties
have reached a seat adjustment agreement in a bid to cement their
relations.

However, there was no statement from the PML-N regarding the meeting
between the two, but JUI-F chief Maulana Fazl said both parties have
reached an agreement to contest elections together.

Maulana Fazl said that JUI-F and PML-N have decided to “walk together in
future” as well. “There will be seat adjustments with PML-N and the
rules of the game should be fair and equal for all the parties,” he
added.
