Islamabad, Mar 24 (UNI) Senior PPP leader Makhdoom Amin Fahim today resigned from the presidentship of the Alliance for Restoration of Democracy (ARD).
In a letter addressed to Acting secretary general of ARD, Abdul Qadeer Khamosh, he wrote he was resigning from the leadership of the alliance because the ARD had achieved its goal of restoration of democracy in the country.
The objectives of the struggle for restoration of democracy have been achieved with the election of the new national assembly, the News quoted him as saying.
The ARD was constituted eight years ago under the leadership of Late Nawabzada Nasrullah Khan. Pakistan People's Party, Muslim League-N and other major opposition parties were the members of the alliance.
Prior to the recent general elections Muslim League-N and other parties had formed All Parties Democratic Movement (APDM), another alliance of the opposition parties, leaving the PPP as the only major political force in the ARD.
