LAHORE: Despite of having enough presence in National and Punjab assemblies to form governments on its own, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) is ready to accommodate all political forces including MQM and PTI to form a likely political coalition, says PML-N leader Senator Pervez Rashid.

Consultations are underway to form the next government, said Rashid while speaking to media representatives on Sunday.

Shahbaz Sharif, Ishaq Dar, Khwaja Saad Rafiq, Ahsan Iqbal and Dr Asif Kirmani among other party leaders attended a meeting, headed by PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif, at their party’s headquarters in Raiwind.

Formation of governments in provinces and at the centre was discussed in the meeting.

According to PML-N sources, Shahbaz Sharif was touted to be made Punjab chief minister once again. Ishaq Dar and Ahsan Iqbal are likely to become next finance and education ministers respectively.

According to unofficial results, the PML-N has managed to grab 125 NA seats that may exceed to 130 till all results are final in the historic May 11 polls.
