Pakisan Muslim League – Nawaz’s Ishaq Dar held a meeting with Pakistan Muslim League –Quaid’s Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain on Wednesday, DawnNews quoted sources as saying.

The meeting took place in the chamber of Opposition Leader in the Senate Wasim Sajjad, sources said.

Earlier, in October, a meeting took place between PML-Q leaders Tariq Azim and S M Zafar with Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif and other key PML-N leaders in Lahore. The meeting was seen as a significant move towards a possible alliance.

Meanwhile, in September, senior PML-N leader Pervaiz Rasheed had said that the PML-N will welcome the PML-Q if they rejoin the party.

The latest developments come in the backdrop of Pir Pagara spearheading a “merger” of the Muslim Leagues in order to form a united Muslim League. PML-N and PML-Q have kept a distance from this arrangement.
