Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) on Thursday has decided to boycott polls for leader of the House, well-informed sources told Dunya News.
As per details garnered, PPP has taken this decision after top brass decided not to vote for grand opposition’s nominee Shehbaz Sharif for elections for premier.
Sources further added that PPP’s co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari would not attend the historic session whereas chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari will address the House once the voting is concluded.
PPP has decided not to support Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s (PML-N) candidate Shehbaz Sharif in prime minister (PM) polls citing latter’s statements against Asif Ali Zardari in the past.
During his interview in program Dunya Kamran Khan Kay Sath, PPP leader Chaudhry Manzoor said that the decision not to back PML-N was taken three days ago.
The party has also stayed away from the election of Punjab Assembly speaker and deputy speaker.
