ISLAMABAD - Efforts aimed at reunification of PML-N and PML-Q have hit snags after reluctance of PML-Q Punjab President and former Chief Minister Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi to help pave the way. Well-placed party sources revealed to TheNation Tuesday that PML-Q President Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain had agreed to the proposal while Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi was still reluctant to budge from the earlier position. It was learnt that PML-N leadership had offered to Pervaiz Elahi the slot of Chief Minister of the Punjab Province in the future set-up in lieu of political support to the PML-N in the Punjab Assembly. According to the sources, PML-N had 176 members while the PML-Q had more than 60 members in the Punjab Assembly. However, soon after the 18 February general elections, PML-N had roped in as many as 36 members of the PML-Q in the shape of a forward bloc, whereas the PPP has got 110 seats in the Punjab. Informed sources said that the PML reunification move was initiated to tackle the situation in case the PPP decides to sit on the Opposition benches in the Provincial Assembly. The situation would turn to be troublesome for the PML-N to retain its government even if 36 member forward bloc pulls out its support which the sources said was quite possible because of the PPP struggle to get their votes for the presidential candidate Asif Ali Zardari.
