Fazl to make decision over PPP's resignation from PDM: Maryam | Latest News Pakistan | Daily Pakistan

PML-N's vice-president Maryam Nawaz
PML-N's vice-president Maryam Nawaz said Monday it is up to Maulana Fazlur Rehman, the chief of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), to make a decision using his wisdom over the PPP's reaction to a show-cause notice issued by the Opposition's anti-government coalition.

Speaking to the media here in Lahore, Maryam Nawaz clarified that the decision to issue a show-cause notice to the PPP was taken unanimously by the PDM and not by any single party.

Maryam Nawaz said the parties in the PDM were united and committed to their cause. The struggle of the Opposition's anti-government coalition was to correct the direction Pakistan was moving in, she added.

The PML-N leader further underscored that while the move to send a show-cause notice to the PPP was unanimous, the decision on what to do now that the Sindh-based party had responded was left to the wisdom and leadership of Fazlur Rehman.

"We will sit in the PDM [meeting] and decide what to do" about it, she said.

Earlier today, PPP chairperson Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari held a news conference to announce that his party's Central Executive Committee (CEC) called upon its members to resign from all positions of the PDM.

Flanked by party leaders, Bilawal said the CEC concluded that resignations from the national and provincial assemblies should be "like an atom bomb".

The PPP's stance that the Opposition should not "abandon the Parliament and the Senate battleground" had been vindicated and that if it had listened to the other political parties in boycotting the Senate elections and by-polls, it would have harmed democracy.

"The Pakistan Peoples Party rejects the so-called show-cause notice," he said. "Politics is done with equality and respect. The PPP demands an unconditional apology to the ANP and to the PPP for this obnoxious attitude," he said.

"We condemn the politics of Opposition against members of the Opposition," he said, adding that his party's doors were open for all other parties and that there should be a "working relationship" among them.
