Karachi: The Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) has decided to strongly oppose the constitutional amendment proposed by the federal government to allow public voting for the upcoming Senate election.

According to sources, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) have agreed to oppose the motion and a meeting of opposition leaders will be held on Monday before National Assembly session.

PPP leader Shazia Marri said in an informal conversation that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf does not trust its members and is now proposing amendments to keep a close watch on lawmakers.

She further stated that Pakistan’s constitution cannot be amended based solely on the wishes of the current rulers.
