On Wednesday, a symbolic session of the Punjab Assembly held by the opposition elected Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Hamza Shahbaz as the chief minister after the incumbent government sealed off the provincial assembly building.

Members from the PML-N, Pakistan People’s Party, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s Jahangir Khan Tareen and Abdul Aleem Khan groups attended the session. PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz was also present.

Speaking on the talk show, Elahi said that “when I joined politics, Chaudhry Shujaat and Pervaiz Elahi advised one thing, which is not to trust Sharifs”. He went on to claim that PML-N was not in a position to contest elections as the public offered its support to PTI. Commenting on relations with PPP leaders, Elahi said PML-Q enjoyed good relations with Asif Ali Zardari.
