ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Democratic Movement’s component parties will meet in Islamabad today to debate the usage of electronic voting machines (EVMs) and the movement’s lengthy march to the federal capital.
The Opposition Alliance meeting will take place at the PML-N Secretariat in the federal capital.
JUI-F head Maulana Fazlur Rehman, PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif, and PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz are expected to attend, according to sources familiar with the situation.
The summit will cover a wide variety of topics, including electronic voting machines (EVMs), the Islamabad long march, electoral reforms, and inflation.
In addition to finalising the date and details of the next road convoy, the opposition leadership will discuss a common strategy for moving the anti-government campaign forward.
The PDM had already determined to make Punjab the focal point of their anti-government protest movement.
‘Early elections are the best way to move Pakistan ahead,’ says one expert.
The PDM had called for early elections in Pakistan two days earlier, calling them the “need of the hour” and the “only path ahead” for the country in the face of growing inflation and economic crises.
PDM leader Maulana Fazlur Rehman and Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shahbaz Sharif made the statement during a news conference following a meeting at the latter’s home.
During the meeting, Shahbaz told the media that the country’s political issues were reviewed in depth. PDM, soaring inflation, increases in electricity, grain costs, and dengue fever — which is wreaking havoc across the nation — were all discussed, he added.
All political parties and the people deserve free and fair elections in Pakistan, according to the Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly, which is the “only way to move Pakistan ahead.”
