LARKANA: Former president Asif Ali Zardari has held discussions on getting his son, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari elected as a member of the National Assembly, DawnNews reported.

To achieve this, the possibility of Bilawal standing from NA-204 Larkana was looked into. Bilawal Bhutto Zardari turned 25 years old on September 21.

Former Sindh law minister Ayaz Soomro had been elected from NA-204 constituency in the previous election.

To vacate the seat Ayaz Soomro could be given responsibilities in the Sindh Government.

Separately, Asif Ali Zardari said during a speech in Naudero that the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) would support the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) on every decision that would benefit the country.

Moreover, the former president said that if the ongoing Karachi operations had not been supported, then the situation in the country would have worsened, adding that all issues would be resolved once the security situation of the country improved.

PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah, Faryal Talpur, MNA Mohammad Ayaz Soomro and several party workers were also present during the Eid celebrations.
