PPP supremo Asif Ali Zardari has predicted that the PPP and the PML-N might need each other when the results are finalised at the end of the polls. The PML-N was the early bird, as it tried to win the smaller parties in Sindh and Balochistan. As the nation goes to the elections, it will be the PPP bloc versus the PML-N bloc and after the polls, it may again surprisingly be the PPP bloc in coalition with the PML-N bloc to form a government. The PPP supremo believes that if the PPP and the PML-N fail to reach a power-sharing formula, the PPP might form a coalition government with the help of smaller parties pushing the PML-N on the opposition benches. While Sindh is a PPP stronghold, Zardari has close ties with several Baloch leaders who can possibly support the PPP in the polls.
