ISLAMABAD - The PML-N's battle of nerves with religio-political and other factions to strike seat-to-seat adjustment is reaching new highs with each passing day, as the party has still not been able to thrash out an adjustment formula with any big political party across the country.

The former ruling party in Punjab-PML(N) is currently engaged in seat-to-seat adjustment arrangement almost across the country with different big and small political factions, including Jamaat-e-Islami (JI), Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F), Balochistan National Party-Mengal(BNP-M) and others.

Except the party's attempt to give tough time to its main rival party PPP in Sindh is too not being considered much significant for its personal capacity except its 'foothold' due to certain reasons.

The ten party's alliance under Pir Pagara's PML-F, which is an amalgamation of national political, religious and nationalist parties with different, rather bit contradictory election manifestos, not being weighed as much significant achievement for it in future because of such reasons.

The Nawaz Sharif-led party' s recent efforts to take some breath in Balochistan will take more days to finalise a seat adjustment formula or alliance with the Balochistan National Party-Mengal(BNP-M), as committee formed to finalise the matter has not reached on any consensus as yet.

The matter of seat-to-seat adjustments of the PML-N with other parties came into limelight after its rift with Pakistan Muslim League Likeminded (PML-LM) on certain issue, which also led to disintegrate the later.

The PML-LM reportedly demanded 11 per cent seat adjustment deal with PML-N which could not be materialized and compelled the party members to revive PML(Junejo) as a new political strength. One of the members of former PML-LM who secured to get seat from the PML-N Salim Saif Ullah had also shared with this newspaper that PML-N had not fulfilled its promise and give only some seats to them.

Another interesting development is also going to be held in coming days as some former members of the PML-LM are all set to submit petition against the PML-N in the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) with an argument to prove them not 'Sadiq' and 'Amin' thus not illegible to contest in upcoming election-2013. "We are all set to submit petition in the Election Commission before 17 April, attaching signed agreement of the PML-LM and PML-N on seat adjustment formula of 11 per cent," said newly formed PML(J) chief Iqbal Dar, talking to TheNation.

The two religio-political parties Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) and Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F), which has remained erstwhile partners of MMA, currently engaged in seat-to- seat adjustment formula from last some months are still giving optimistic signs to patch up in days to come if not early.

Both the parties (JI and JUI-F) are reportedly demanding arrangement only on 'quid pro quo' basis that have created battle of nerves for them.

The case of Jamaat-e-Islami (JI), which was recently reflected from both the parties as a close chapter is resurfacing with some new hopes, as both the parties (PML-N and JI) are once again ready to reinitiate its talks.

Sources privy to the development shared that a brief interval of stalemate was due to demand of three seats from JI side in Punjab. Although they were almost ready to reach on consensus in the KPK but this 'demand' compel the PML-N to not to finalize this deal.

When contacted, PML-N Raja Zafar-ul-Haq only limited to utter a single line answer saying 'this is not close chapter as yet'.

Almost having same emotion from other side (JI) in bit different words also give positive signs. "Till the date of elections the seat adjustment could be finalized," said Liaqat Baloch, talking to TheNation, in an optimistic tone.

On the other hand, the other religio-political party -JUI-Fazal is also in a process of 'make or break' with PML-N to strike its final deal of seat adjustment arrangement.

Though the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz almost twice, after some intervals, resumed its suspended talks with the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl  (JUI-F) but slow development on deal is hinting unsatisfactory signs from both sides. Both the parties, having demands for maximum 'favour' from each other, are on verge of backtracking in coming days, sources in JUI-F told TheNation.

As, the Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) reportedly restarting talks with the JUI-F is only concentrating to gain maximum favour in the Khyber Pakhtun Khwa(KPK) while, they are silent on the seats adjustment in Punjab with the JUI-F.

Sources said that the 'silence' of Nawaz Sharif-led party on the seats of Punjab especially Lahore is fast leading to sabotage the deal between two parties. It is relevant to mention here that JUI-F's chief Maulana Fazlur Rahman has hinted in its recent remarks that PML-N was not serious in talks on seat adjustment.

When contacted, JUI-F central leader Ghafor Haider said that PML-N should also include Punjab chapter in its talks with them on seat adjustment. "They are ready for seat adjustment in KPK but not ready to utter single word about Punjab," he added.

It is pertinent to mention here that talking to this scribe PML-N Senior Leader Zafar Iqbal Jhagra, who was given task from his party leadership to appease JUI-F on seat-to-seat adjustment was much confident to convince JUI-F in a week.

In other development JUI-F has also hinted tripartite electoral cooperation in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) with Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) and Qaumi Watan Party (QWP). As, JUI-F provincial deputy Amir Maulana Attaur Rehman has said the party was engaged in negotiations with PML-N after overcoming an earlier deadlock. Both parties (PML-N and JUI-F) had also exchanged their list of demands quite earlier with each other and soon 'make or break' will be shared with masses.
