Islamabad, Nov 17 (ANI): Pakistans former Railways Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed has said that the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) would not boycott the upcoming general elections.
“I do not see PPP boycotting the general elections. It will participate in the process but will adopt a different strategy keeping in view the elections results,” he said.
Rashid said that the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid, the PPP, the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) and the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) would emerge as major political parties after the elections.
He said the PML-Q would emerge as a strong political party in the elections because of unprecedented development projects across the country during its tenure.
To a question about the PML-Nawazs position in the elections, he said the PML-N did not have enough candidates to field in all constituencies, the Daily Times reported. (ANI)
