Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Chief Altaf Hussain announced his support for the prime minister-elect Nawaz Sharif and his party, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) on Monday, Express News reported.
He said, the decision is being taken to uphold the interest of the country.
This declaration of support from the second largest party in Sindh bodes well for PML-N who emerged as the clear winner in the general elections.
Having won the highest number of seats in the National Assembly, PML-N is expected to form the next government with Nawaz as the prime minister, who has already been offered support by various independent candidates and political parties. Premiers of China and India also extended their vote of confidence to Nawaz after the general elections.
