ISLAMABAD: Pakistan People’s Party leader Qamar Zaman Kaira says the opposition parties made extensive efforts to bring their joint candidate for presidential election but unfortunately could not reach a consensus.
Addressing a news conference along with other party leaders Chaudhry Manzoor and Nayyar Bukhari in Islamabad this afternoon, he said the opposition parties should remain united to hold the government accountable.
Qamar Zaman Kaira said no one had any objection over the personality of the PPP’s nominee Aitzaz Ahsan but there was a reservation that PPP should have consulted the other opposition parties before proposing name of Aitzaz Ahsan.
Re garding appearance of PPP Cochairman Asif Zardari and Faryal Talpur before FIA today in a money laundering case, Qamar Zaman Kaira said some television channels misreported on it.
He said no questionnaire was handed over to Asif Zardari. Speaking on the occasion, Chaudhry Manzoor said that PPP has no compulsions regarding nomination of candidature for presidential election.
