In an informal talk with the media at the Parliament House, PPP co-Chairman and former president Asif Ali Zardari said his party was unwilling to take any ministry in the new coalition government.
“PPP isn’t taking ministries in the new government. We want to accommodate friends first,” he said.

Meanwhile, it has also been learnt through sources that MQM-P has also declined the offer of taking any ministries in the coalition government.
