On Saturday, PML-N secretary-general Ahsan Iqbal said that the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) would contest by-elections jointly.

According to the details, Ahsan Iqbal expressed his high hopes while speaking to media in Lahore that PDM’s member parties would give “complete support” to PML-N during by-elections.

“We have decided not to field a candidate in Sindh for by-elections on seats that were won by the PPP,” he added.

Earlier, PDM had decided to take part in the by-polls but a decision related to the Senate elections would be taken later.

The announcement came after a few days before the by-polls are set to take place on two National Assembly and five provincial assemblies’ seats.

By-polls for Sindh Assembly’s PS-43 (Sanghar III) and PS-88 (Malir II) and Balochistan Assembly’s PB-20 (Pishin III) will be held on February 16, 2021, while the voters in NA-45 (Kurram I) and NA-75 (Sialkot IV) and Punjab Assembly’s PP-51 (Gujranwala I) and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly’s PK-63 (Nowshera III) will elect their representatives on February 19, 2021.
