Islamabad: President of Pakistan Dr Arif Alvi’s attempt to bridge the gap between the federal government and opposition remained unsuccessful. On Wednesday, Dr Arif Alvi met Federal Law Minister Azam Nazeer Tarar and Federal Minister Ayaz Sadiq. After the meeting, it was unveiled that the federal government is prepared to contest in election if PTI Chief Imran Khan dissolves the assemblies of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
In an interview with a private news channel, Azam Nazeer Tarar said that Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) would participate in the elections of Punjab and KP in case assemblies are dissolved. He added that the president provided suggestions to stabilise the declining economy. Earlier, Arif Alvi also met with Finance Minister Ishaq Dar to connect the government and PTI for formal talks.
Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah has also said multiple times that government would contest in provincial elections. However, analysts believe that if Imran Khan wins the elections on both assemblies, he will have a better chance to regain the federal government in October 2023.
