The Pakistan People's Party Monday welcomed the decision by former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to participate in the forthcoming elections under protest, following the advice of PPP Chairperson Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto.

In a statement Monday, PPP Secretary General Jehangir Bader said that this vindicated the PPP's strategy for securing restoration of democracy.

He said that the PPP was pleased that Sharif, the co-signatory to the Charter for Democracy, had done what Bhutto had proposed in terms of political strategy.

Bader said that Bhutto's return to Pakistan and strategy of dialogue helped open up political space for all political forces, including Sharif.

Bader said that the PPP welcomed the fact that PML-N leader Sharif had recognized that Bhutto's choice was sagacious.

"The PPP will continue to oppose dictatorship and seek people's support against the rigging of elections," he said. "The PPP also look forward to continued cooperation among opposition parties for the implementation of the Charter of Democracy."
