Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has decided to join an all-parties conference called by Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman.

The conference will reportedly take place on November 26.

The JUI-F chief had called the opposition moot last week to deliberate over the future course of action against the government.

According to a PPP spokesperson, the PPP chairman decided to join the APC.

“A PPP delegation, comprising senior party leaders, led by Bilawal will attend the conference,” said the spokesperson.

Faz had telephoned opposition leaders, including Bilawal and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Ahsan Iqbal and had invited them to attend the APC.

However, PML-N Vice-President Maryam Nawaz decided not to attend the APC, said reports.

The JUI-F chief recently held the ‘Azadi March’ series of protests, urging Prime Minister Imran Khan to resign, a demand rejected by the premier.

The protest started with a days-long sit-in in the federal capital. The sit-in was eventually called off and the opposition parties, led by JUI-F, moved onto 'Plan B'.

However, the plan to block major thoroughfares of the country did not last long and the party then decided to approach the Election Commission of Pakistan.
