Another meeting has been scheduled for tomorrow between the both to settle the issue.
During the meeting, various names were considered for the caretaker chief minister, but no concurrence was gained.
Rana Ansar, while addressing the media after the meeting, emphasised that this was the second round of consultations, and efforts were made to agree on a suitable nominee. However, if an agreement cannot be reached, the matter will be taken to the parliamentary committee for further discussion.
