Bilawal hopes for more joint opposition action in parliament

PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Friday said that joint parliamentary action on electronic voting machines (EVMs) and accountability laws could yield further successes for the opposition.

He made the remarks during a meeting with Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman — their first meeting since the PPP quit the opposition alliance Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM).

The PPP had left the PDM in April in the wake of a show-cause notice being issued to it for nominating PPP leader Yousuf Raza Gilani as the opposition leader in the Senate “in violation of the unanimous decision” of the alliance.

The incident led to a divide in the opposition with both camps flinging criticism at each other. The JUI-F chief had accused the PPP of trying to “stab the opposition movement in its back” in August, while the latter had called on Rehman in September to refrain from “further dividing” the opposition.
