The members maintained that PPP would give tough time to PML-N in upcoming local body and general elections and will not enter into any alliance with it

The CEC members blamed the party’s alliance with the PML-N as the major reason for the decline in its popularity in Punjab while suggesting that pacts should be made with other religious and political parties such as ANP and PAT in the upcoming elections

The sources said that the PPP has decided to reorganise all its allied wings

Separate conventions of all the wings will be held

The meeting also reviewed the holding of Farmers Convention, Students Convention, Youth Convention, Women's Convention, Lawyers Convention, Labour Convention and also decided to set up an Election Monitoring Cell
