ISLAMABAD - With more and more independents and smaller parties coming up with their support to the Pakistan Peoples Party Presidential candidate Asif Ali Zardari the chances of any formal deal between PPP and Pakistan Muslim League (Quaid) are thinning out. The sources in Pakistan Peoples Party disclosed to The Nation that they had already placed any deal with Q-League as last resort, as taking Q-League would have more negatives than positives. PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari had dubbed Pakistan Muslim League (Qauid) as "Qatil League" soon after the assassination of his spouse and life Chairperson of the Party Ms Benazir Bhutto in Rawalpindi. During the Party meetings since the break-up of the alliance with Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz), PPP leadership had kept the PML (Q) engaged in dialogue as political tactics so that the party could not jump into an alliance with Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz). Some sources in PPP said that they could not afford to take Q-League on board because of their Party's harsh stand against Chaudhrys from Gujrat with whom the PPP had generations old gray relations. The sources said that PML (Q) during its backdoor contacts with PPP asked them to help them in bringing down the Punjab Government and give them share in governance both in Punjab and Centre, the demands not at all acceptable to PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari who was not at all in a mood to destabilize PML (N) Government in the Punjab Province. In the CEC meeting in which PPP leadership forced Asif Ali Zardari to become the presidential candidate the matter of entering into alliance with Q-League also came under discussion and most of the Party leaders were against it and said that it would cause irreparable damage to the Party's public image. Now after winning over the support of Aftab Ahmad Khan Sherpao's PPP and bringing round Maulana Fazlur Rehman, who is already part of the ruling coalition, the things seemed much easier for PPP as far as the presidential elections are concerned. With the withdrawal of the papers by the covering candidate of Asif Ali Zardari the rumours about his stepping back from the presidential race had died down and now they would more effectively win over the support of more electorates in the coming days. According to the claim of PPP leadership they would fetch around 500 votes out of the total electoral college of 702 comprising the National Assembly, Senate and four Provincial Assemblies. An important meeting of PPP leadership was held here at Prime Minister House on Saturday to review the efforts so far made to win over maximum votes for Party Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari. During the meeting Premier Gilani was informed about the campaign and the contacts with the electorate both in the Parliament and in the Provincial Assemblies and it was estimated that Asif Ali Zardari would bag around 500 votes. The meeting was participated by Minister for Information Sherry Rehman, Chief Whip in National Assembly Syed Khurshid Shah, Leader of the House in the Senate, Mian Raza Rabbani, Minister for Law Farooq H Naik and Attorney General of Pakistan Sardar Latif Khosa and each and every member gave his input on the efforts so far made to win over maximum number of voters for Asif Ali Zardari. The participants told PM that PML-Q's forward bloc, MQM, FATA members, ANP, JUI, Muslim League (Functional) and a good number of independents had promised to support PPP candidate in presidential elections. The PM directed the Federal Cabinet and other members to speed up the campaign and contacts with parliament members to get vote for Zardari. PM also clearly stated that deposed judges would be reinstated very soon.
