According to media reports, the former president is scheduled to arrive in Lahore on Monday for a three-day tour intended to strengthen PPP’s position in the province.

He is also anticipated to speak with the President of the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain.
During his visit to Lahore, Asif Zardari is also expected to meet with the Prime Minister and other party leaders to finalize the list of candidates for Punjab.
