To launch a movement against the government next month, the leadership committee recommended Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazl (JUI) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman to head the opposition Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) coalition.
A leadership committee of 11 opposition parties met on Wednesday, during which a majority of participants agreed on Fazal’s alliance as the choice of leaders.
Representatives of smaller political parties said only Fazal could effectively lead the opposition. Sources said Geo News The meeting participants decided that the PDM would represent one central and four provincial organizations.
It was decided during the meeting that, according to sources, the opposition coalition would also have local district level organizations. The names of the leaders who will be part of the central and provincial organizations of the PDMA through the opposition leadership will come out in a few days.
Sources further said Geo News Opposition parties have agreed to extend the Charter of Democracy (COD) and to select public places where public gatherings will be held to put pressure on the government.
These important announcements regarding the PDM’s movement against the government will be made by the opposition leadership in a few days.
After the multi-party conference, the opposition announced a new coalition, the Pakistan Democratic Movement
After a multi-party conference in Islamabad on Sunday – introduced by the opposition as an “all-party conference” – the opposition shared a plan of action to “rid the country” of the government. ۔
Addressing a media briefing, JUI-F chief Fazal had said that the opposition had demanded “immediate resignation of Prime Minister-elect Imran Ahmad Niazi”.
Failing to do so, he said, the joint opposition would call for nationwide protests involving lawyers, traders, laborers, farmers, civil society and the general public.
In the first phase, starting in October, rallies will be held in Sindh, Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab.
“In the second phase, starting in December, there will be huge demonstrations across the country. In the third phase, the long march, which will start in January next year, will move towards Islamabad,” Fazal had said.
“To overthrow the elected government, the joint opposition will use all means, including a vote of no confidence and resignation from parliament.”
Meanwhile, PML-N President Shahbaz Sharif had said that the opposition had no option but to reach these decisions as the present government was “elected” and could not handle the affairs of the country, including Kashmir. Including the situation and the corona virus crisis.
“The future of the country is in jeopardy if the government continues its rule,” he said.
PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari had said that the opposition was moving towards its “mission” under the guidance and support of PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif and PPP chairman Asif Ali Zardari.
In response to a question, Bilawal had said that if any party reneges on its promises today, the people will have to answer for it.
He said the movement would not only fight against the government but also “those who brought it to power”.
