Maryam Nawaz to contest elections from NA-127 instead of NA-125: Reports

Ayaz Sadiq not willing to contest against PTI’s Aleem Khan

Islamabad (Pakistan Point News – 9th June, 2018) The daughter of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz will reportedly contest elections from NA-127 instead of NA-125.

Sources said that Maryam Nawaz is expected to contest elections from NA-127 instead of NA-125 while Ayaz Sadiq is not willing to contest against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) Aleem Khan.

Former NA speaker Ayaz Sadiq wants to contest against PTI’s Dr Yasmeen Rashid from NA-125. Pervaiz Malik is being forced to change his constituency in this regard but he is not willing to do so.

Moreover, the PMLN has taken oath from its electables and party members.

Party sources said that the oath imposed the responsibility of maintaining party discipline on all the members. None of the party members will be allowed to contest elections as independent candidate in case they don’t get a ticket. The party said that all the candidates cannot get tickets.

Maryam Nawaz did campaign for NA-120 (now NA-125) by-election after Nawaz Sharif was disqualified by the Supreme Court. PMLN’s Kulsoom Nawaz contested in place of Nawaz Sharif against Dr Yasmeen Rashid from this constituency. As Kulsoom was under treatment for cancer in London, her daughter Maryam Nawaz carried out the election campaign.
