The PML-N has stated that it will not form an electoral coalition with any other political party.
According to Rana Sanaullah, seat adjustment is something that is possible with all political parties.

Rana Sanaullah, the Minister of the Interior, has stated that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), the party now in power, does not require entering into an electoral alliance with any other political party in order to compete in the 2018 general elections.
He stated this while speaking at a press conference on Tuesday in Islamabad. “The PML-N has not taken any decision regarding the electoral alliance with any party,” he remarked.
Nevertheless, the security chief said that there is the potential for seat adjustment with all of the major parties.
His declaration comes in the wake of rumours that the recently established Istihkam-e-Pakistan Party (IPP) is looking to create an electoral alliance with the incumbent Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) in order to compete in the general elections that are slated to take place in October of this year.
The leader of the IPP, Jahangir Tareen, departed for the United Kingdom on Sunday. It is anticipated that while he is there, he would meet with Nawaz Sharif, the supreme leader of the PML-N, to discuss the prospect of an electoral alliance between the two parties.
According to information obtained by Geo News, the PML-N made the decision not to participate in an electoral alliance at the end of the previous month. Instead, the party intends to run in the upcoming general election on its own, and the elections would be held in accordance with the Constitution once the term of the National Assembly has been fulfilled.
This new development occurred as a result of a meeting that took place between Nawaz and Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif in London. The latter is now in the United Kingdom in order to participate in the Coronation ceremony for King Charles III.
In March of this year, former President Asif Ali Zardari stated that he will not run in the upcoming elections as part of a coalition with the current government.
At a news conference held in Vehari, the co-chairman of the party made it abundantly apparent that the PPP would compete in the upcoming elections using the “arrow” symbol, and not for an alliance with the PDM, which is the party that is currently in power.
“We are not a part of the PDM, but we are their partners in the government,” the PPP stalwart stated prior to the general elections in Punjab, which are slated to take place on April 30. These elections are planned to take place in Punjab.
During the same news conference, Sanaullah criticised Imran Khan, the leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), by stating that it was bad for the country that someone who did not believe in talking to politicians entered politics. He said this while criticising Khan.
He continued by saying, “Today marks the end of fitna,” which is Arabic for “mischief.”
