Zardari best choice for PM of coalition government: Bilawal




ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari says his father Asif Ali Zardari is the “best choice” for premier if a coalition government is former following the country’s upcoming general election scheduled to be held on July 25.

“He [Zardari] has experience managing a coalition government and not just managing but he was the first civilian president to complete his term and the coalition government was also the first to complete its full-term,” Bilawal said during an interview with Saleem Safi on Pakistan media outlet Geo News’ programme Jirga.

Bilawal went on to say that PPP’s previous government had done great things for the country and had achieved great feats. He said, “It passed the 18th amendment, NFC award, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, devolution of powers, investment in CPEC and local economies, social protection programmes, labour, human and agricultural rights.”

PPP has ideological differences with the PML-N and PTI. I think that whoever can implement our manifesto and assure us that the NFC award will be implemented and there will be no compromise on the 18th amendment, then we can work with them.”

Bilawal stressed that the best situation would be for the coalition government to be led by the PPP.
