According to sources, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari also put a condition that he would be part of the cabinet if Moshin Dawar and members of other coalition partners of Balochistan National Party-Mengal (BNPM) and Awami National Party (ANP) are included in the cabinet in the first phase.

PPP chairman is in London and expected to meet PMLN Supremo Nawaz Sharif. According to sources in the PPP, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari wanted to discuss major issues with Nawaz Sharif who remained active in the formation of the cabinet of the coalition government.
