PESHAWAR – The PDM on Saturday(March-11) announced it won’t participate in the March 19 by-elections to be held on 3 seats of the National Assembly in KP.
“It will be a waste of time & money,” the alliance’s office-bearer said in a satement.
PDM’s provincial coordinator Abdul Jalil Jan said the Pakistan Democratic Movement & its allies had already decided not to take part in the by-elections, adding they were focusing on the general elections.
The by-elections are scheduled be held on March-19 for NA-22, NA-24 & NA-31.
It may be recalled that NA-22, NA-24 & NA-31 were won by PTI’s Ali Mohammad Khan, Fazal Muhammad Khan & Shaukat Ali, respectively, in the 2018 general elections.
However, these seats fell vacant when the Pakistan Tahreek-e-Insaf decided to resign from the NA after the party’s govt was sent packing through a vote of confidence.
The decision to quit the lower house of parliament was taken during Pakistan Tahreek-e-Insaf’s parliamentary party meeting, which was presided over by Pakistan Tahreek-e-Insaf Chief Imran Khan.
