Disputes are growing in Shahbaz alliance in Pakistan. The country’s veteran politician Maulana Fazlur Rehman has been working hard to remove Imran Khan from the post of Prime Minister of Pakistan. He has also succeeded in that movement. Imran was ousted from power by a coalition of a few parties believing in different ideologies. Later, Muslim League leader Shahbaz Sharif became the Prime Minister. But since then, dissent in the ruling coalition has been growing. In the beginning there was a problem with the ministry, now there is a dispute over the election day. Meanwhile, Pakistan’s National Security Committee said there was no foreign conspiracy to remove Imran Khan from power. The Dawn and Top News.
Imran Khan has been talking about mid-term elections since before he was ousted. Maulana Fazlur Rehman, now head of the ruling coalition Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), has made the same demand.
In a speech to leaders and activists of his party Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazlur (JUI-F) in Islamabad this week. Rehman said the new government should not last more than a year. In his words, in this new setup. Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam has its own identity and telling them (the alliance partners), we still want immediate elections.
However, the government of Shahbaz and his party Muslim League do not agree with this demand of Fazlur Rehman. On Friday, Maryam Aurangzeb, Pakistan’s new information minister and PML-N leader, said there would be no election if the government’s term did not expire.

Shahbaz Sharif announced the new cabinet just hours after Maulana Fazlur Rehman presented his demand or suggestion for by-elections on April 18. However, there is disagreement among the alliance partners about what that cabinet will look like. Although Maulana Fazlur Shahbaz did not join the cabinet, his party demanded the presidency and expressed displeasure over plans to give one ministry each to Awami National Party (ANP) and independent MP Mohsin Dawar.
Maulana Fazlur Rehman also expressed dissatisfaction with PPP co-chairperson Asif Ali-Zardari, one of the main allies of the ruling coalition, and questioned why the parties or individuals contesting the JUI-F were given two ministries.Earlier, Zardari had announced that the PPP would not join the new cabinet until the allies had made arrangements.
