LAHORE: Former Sindh chief minister Dr Arbab Ghulam Rahim decided to merge his party Pakistan Peoples Muslim League (PPML) with the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Express News reported on Sunday.
PPML was earlier known as Pakistan Muslim League-Likeminded.
The decision was taken during Rahim’s meeting with former Punjab chief minister Shahbaz Sharif in Lahore.
Rahim, who was Sindh CM from 2004 to 2007, had been elected to national and provincial assemblies from his constituency in Tharparkar District several times.
In its attempt to form a strong government in the centre, PML-N has been wooing political leaders into its fold. Yesterday, Pakistan Muslim League-Functional (PML-F) formally announced that it will join the coalition government.
Earlier on May 17, National Peoples Party (NPP) was merged with PML-N. The party is led by Ghulam Murtaza Jatoi.
