Pakistan's two largest winning parties in the recent general elections have agreed to move a resolution in the first parliament session asking President Pervez Musharraf to seek a vote of confidence, the News reported on Wednesday.

The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), the two largest parties in parliament, decided to move the resolution in the very first session of the National Assembly, which is to be held before March 10.

The decision was made during a meeting between PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari and top PML-N leaders here Tuesday evening.

The parties also agreed on a resolution asking the United Nations to probe into the assassination of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto.

The PPP won the most votes in the Feb 18 elections and will form a coalition government with the PML-N led by another former premier, Nawaz Sharif.
