LAHORE - Former foreign minister Hina Rabbani Khar called on PPP-P president Asif Ali Zardari at the Bilawal House on Sunday.

She was accompanied by her father Ghulam Rabbani Khar who is an MNA on PPP ticket from Muzaffargarh district.

Party sources described the meeting as important in the run-up to the upcoming general elections. It may be recalled that Hina Rabbani Khar had not contested 2013 election due to her frosty relations with the party’s top leadership at that time. There were also reports of her joining the PTI in the past, but she did not consider this option in the end.

Sources said that there was greater likelihood of her contesting the coming elections on the PPP ticket after her meeting with the former president.
