PPP decides to take part in senate polls
KARACHI: Pakistan Peoples Party held a session of its Central Executive Committee (CEC) on Tuesday. It was decided that PPP would take part in upcoming senate elections to challenge the ruling party, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).
During a press conference after a meeting of the CEC, PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto announced the party’s decision to collect resignations of its parliamentarians by December 31. Meanwhile Bilawal also said that the party’s CEC is in favor of contesting by-elections and senate elections.
The Chairman also criticised the government for failing the country’s economy. “It is time for the prime minister(Imran Khan) to go, it is time for us to rid Pakistan…(and)..the prime minister house, of this ‘puppet’ and ‘selected prime minister’,” Bilawal said.
Bilawal also pointed out at ‘establishment’s role’ in politics which he said, would have to ‘break’ and ‘finish’. The Chairman further emphasized on challenging ‘the PTI regime at all forums, using every weapon and tactic’.
Bilawal concluded the press conference by declaring, “We will present the CEC’s suggestions in the next PDM meeting.”
