ISLAMABAD:

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz on Thursday alleged that the party's candidates are being asked to refrain from voting for Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) candidate in the March 12 election for Senate chairman.

"Our senators are being called and asked not to vote for PDM candidate," Maryam said in a Twitter post this afternoon. "Some of them have recorded the evidence," she added. The PML-N leader, however, did not specify as to who was holding such conversations with the party's members.

On March 8, it was reported that the PDM warned the establishment against any attempt to interfere in the polls for the Senate chair position, scheduled for March 12.

Addressing a news conference after a meeting of the PDM leaders on Monday, PDM President Maulana Fazlur Rehman said there was evidence that intelligence agencies violated the Election Commission of Pakistan’s (ECP) code of conduct and tried to influence the March 3 Senate polls by threatening and luring the voters.

Meanwhile, PML-N has started preparations for the PDM's anti-government long march, scheduled to commence on March 26.

According to reports, the party leadership has sought suggestions from central and local leaders within a week to formulate a strategy for the march.
