Pakistan Alliance will meet today in Murree to evolve a consensus on a joint candidate for the office of the President of Pakistan. 

Shehbaz Sharif, President Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), will chair the meeting of the Pakistan Alliance [the alliance of opposition parties which includes Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA), Awami National Party (ANP), Pashtunkhwa Milli Awami Party (PkMAP), National Party, Qaumi Watan Party and Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP)].

According to sources, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) will propose fielding a joint opposition candidate instead of Aitzaz Ahsan, who has been earlier nominated by Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) to contest the presidential election which will be held on September 4.

The sources added that consultations will also be held over fielding a joint opposition candidate for Chairman Senate and opposition leader. 

Moreover, sources said that the Pakistan Alliance will consider holding protests outside Parliament over alleged rigging in the July 25 polls.

The sources further added that PML-N will also seek support of the allied opposition parties for its drive of 'Justice for Nawaz Sharif'. 

Earlier, PML-N had showed reservations over the nomination of Aitazaz Ahsan for the office of President of Pakistan. PML-N said that Ahsan could not be considered a joint opposition candidate.

But, however, PML-N leader Pervaiz Rashid on Friday said the party will consider supporting Ahsan for the post of president if he apologizes to incarcerated Nawaz Sharif.

On the other hand, while responding to Rashid's comments, Ahsan in a media talk said that the PML-N's demand is 'non-serious and non-political'.

The Election Commission of Pakistan has announced the schedule for the presidential election which will be held on September 4.
