The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz has rejected a recommendation for the return of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and Awami National Party (ANP) to the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), sources said on Wednesday.

The PML-N insiders said the party -N has been standing firm on its stance and rejected a report about giving consent to a bid to bring PPP and ANP back to the alliance.

Citing sources, the report said the PML-N leaders gave consent to the return of the PPP and ANP to the PDM after Shehbaz Sharif stressed that reunion will strengthen the alliance.

JUI chief Fazlur Rehman is in action for the reunion and claimed the PPP was ready to review its decision on Yousaf Raza Gillani's Senate position. 

Rejecting the report, the PML-N sources said the party refused to budge and conditioned the return to resignations.

Earlier in the month, the PPP and the ANP opted to stay away from the PDM.
