ISLAMABAD:

The Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) refused to take the Punjab governorship which was offered to it by President Asif Ali Zardari, Express 24/7 reported on Friday.


According to sources, PML-Q rejected the offer saying it did not want to be the part of the failed government of Punjab as their party will also have to shoulder the blame.


There are also reports that PML-Q wants to avoid any form of direct confrontation with Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N).


PML-Q is expected to get five ministries according to the power-sharing formula and the federal secretaries are also expected to be appointed by the party.


Moreover, reports indicate that PML-Q leader Mushahid Hussain is in the run for being the next foreign minister. Hina Rabbani Khar is currently the acting foreign minister.

Zahdi Hussain Khalid | 10 years ago | Reply @ Wahab / Aslam Zahid You are expecting too much from a person who was catapulted to political corridors of power by coordinating an interview of Dr. A. Q. Khan with Kuldip Nair. That is his only qualification as a founder of Misguided (Agency Prompted) Adventurism in Journalism. On top of that a man is known by the company he keeps. He has changed political parties more often than a bald man changes his wigs. Do you expect him to perform better than former Foreign Minister Qureshi? THE PUNCH LINE IN THE NEWS STORY: "According to sources, PML-Q rejected the offer saying it did not want to be the part of the failed government of Punjab as their party will also have to shoulder the blame." Are leaders of PML-Q convinced that PPP-Z is doing better across Pakistan than what PML-N is doing in Punjab? Do we have any other yardstick than a leader's policy statement on an important occasion like the announcement of coalition with a government that is: GOVERNMENT IN NAME ONLY? What Zero plus Zero (stolen from ZAB's statement against his opponents) will be equal to?
Aslam Zahid | 10 years ago | Reply @Wahab........... I agree with u.Mushahid Hussain is very talented and Genius man..........I hope will be a good foreign Minister but shame PPP and PML Q.
