Political observers believe that if the opposition alliance (PTI and Muslim League-Q) succeeds in getting their joint candidate elected as the Chief Minister of the largest province of Pakistan today in the Punjab Assembly, then its effects will definitely affect the Federation. I will also fall on the coalition government.
