PML-N secretary-general Ahsan Iqbal on Saturday said that the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) would jointly contest by-elections.
Speaking to media in Lahore, the PML-N leader said that in the by-elections, his party’s candidates would not contest against PPP candidates.
The PML-N secretary-general hoped that the PDM’s member parties would offer “complete support” to his party during the by-elections.
A few days earlier, the leaders of the 11-party alliance had announced that parties that are a part of the PDM would take part in the by-polls, but a decision related to the Senate elections will be taken later.
The development comes only days before the by-polls are set to take place on two National Assembly and five provincial assemblies’ seats.
