ISLAMABAD: On Wednesday Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry expressed astonishment over a claim made by Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Khursheed Shah that PTI proposed the name of Aitzaz Ahsan for presidential elections, media sources reported.

Khursheed Shah had claimed that Fawad Chaudry encountered him and former PM Raja Pervez Ashraf on August 17 and had suggested that the PPP should field a non-controversial and a joint candidate that was applicable for the post of President of Pakistan and assured that PTI will support their candidate.

The PPP stalwart maintained that after brief negotiation, Fawad himself proposed the name of Barrister Aitzaz Ahsan.

He, however, added that it won’t make any difference if Aitzaz doesn’t withdraw as in any case Arif Alvi is poised to “win with biggest majority of recent political history”.

It is important to note here that PTI’s Arif Alvi, PPP’s Aitzaz Ahsan and a multi-party opposition alliance’s Fazlur Rehman will be participating in presidential elections.
