PPP and PML-N have finally sorted out the power sharing in Punjab with a total of 35 ministries, PML-N would obtain 22 while PPP will settle with the remaining 13. While Chief Minister, Speaker and Deputy Speaker would be retained by PML-N. Ideally this is the best deal for PML-N as it retains their control over the province, probably a fair trade-off with Zardari since the arrival of their new coalition partners in the form of MQM.
But what really hangs in the balance is the issue of restoration of judiciary. The notion of a conditional bill on the ‘Minus-one-Formula‘ [restoration of the judges without Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry] is worrisome for the supporters of PML-N, but if Zardari were to trample over the Murree Declaration I suppose the Sharif brothers would be a little fix forced to shrug their shoulders and [as predicted] say that our hands were tied as PPP has control over the house … and live happily ever after with the Punjab govt in their back pocket
Quite literally these days everyone has a theory so what is your analysis of the developing situation amidst rumors of a potential split between PPP and PML-N on this core issue of the restoration of judiciary?
