Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has revealed that the party would vote for the candidates of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz in the up-coming by-polls in Senate.

According to several media reports on Friday, it was revealed that in the up-coming by-elections on two Senate seats, the PPP has decided to vote for the candidates of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz.

This decision was announced by the PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari after the PPP chairman held a consultation meeting with parliamentary leader Hasan Murtaza. “We are competing against a fascist party, which we cannot support,” said Murtaza.

The date for the by-elections was set to be as November 15 and would be held on two seats of Senate, left vacated when PML-N senators Haroon Akhtar and Saadia Abbasi were disqualified due to dual nationality.

Earlier, the Supreme Court had disqualified the two senators in a hearing of dual nationality case under Chief Justice Saqib Nisar. The CJP directed the Election Commission of Pakistan to de-notify Saadia Abbasi, the sister of former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, and Haroon Akhtar as members of the Parliament in October.
