Pak parliament to convene Monday without naming new PM

Pakistan's parliament will convene Monday, but naming a new prime minister will most likely wait until late in the week, a spokesman for one of the coalition parties said Friday.

Pak parliament to convene Monday without naming new PM
The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) of assassinated former premier Benazir Bhutto and the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) of Nawaz Sharif, also a former premier, will form a government together as soon as parliament convenes.

Bhutto's widower, Asif Zardari, who Friday was cleared of the last of seven corruption cases against him, is a front-runner to be prime minister.

But at least two other PPP heavy weights are also in the running and they have not yet decided whether to run.
