ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – Former interior minister and disgruntled leader of ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Chaudhry Nisar on Saturday announced to contest election from another constituency.
Chaudhry Nisar announced to contest election from another constituency NA-63 Taxila.
He said that he had not yet decided to contest election from the provincial assembly’s seat of NA-63 Taxila constituency.
On April 30, the former minister had announced to contest upcoming general elections from three constituencies.
He had announced to contest elections from one National Assembly and two Provincial Assembly seats. The disgruntled PML-N leader had said that he will contest from National Assembly seat NA-59 and Provincial Assembly seats PP0-10 and PP-14.
Meanwhile, Nisar has been quietly working on a plan to contest upcoming elections as an independent candidate. He also shared a survey conducted in his native constituency with his close friends, which suggested that at least 70 percent of the area voters wanted Nisar to contest the next elections as an independent candidate.
The ruling party had also tried to locate some candidates in Ch Nisar’s constituency but failed to find a suitable and strong candidate capable to defeat Nisar.
