ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) chairman Moulana Fazlur Rehman on Wednesday accepted the resignations of Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) and Awami National Party (ANP) from all posts of the opposition alliance.
Maulana Fazlur Rehman while reshuffling the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), has approved the appointment of Hafiz Hamdullah as Information Secretary. Earlier, ANP’s Mian Iftikhar held this post.
On Monday, the PDM chairman Maulana Fazlur Rehman had once again urged the PPP and the ANP to reconsider their decision to resign from all posts of the alliance.
Addressing a press conference flanked by other PDM leaders, Fazl said, “I urge them to reconsider the situation, and if they have committed a mistake, they should accept it […] as these are the tenets of democracy.”
On April 12, the PPP had announced that the party’s Central Executive Committee (CEC) had called upon its members to resign from all positions of the PDM, while leaders of the ANP had withdrawn from the alliance after show-cause notices were issued to the party to explain their actions during the recently held Senate polls.
The presser came after the opposition alliance met in the day to deliberate over its anti-government strategy. However, PPP and ANP were not invited to the steering committee meeting.
