ISLAMABAD -UNS – Ostensibly, it seems that Chaudhry Nisar has parted ways with Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) as former interior minister will contest elections against PML-N’s candidate engineer Qamar ul Islam for seat in lower house of parliament.
Nisar on Sunday filed nomination papers through his aide Sheikh Aslam for two provincial assembly’s seats PP-10 and PP-12 whereas he also submitted nomination papers for NA-59 Rawalpindi and NA-63 Taxila. Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has summoned Nisar on June-13.

On the other hand, Qamarul Zaman also filed nomination papers for NA-59 claiming support of Maryam Nawaz.
Nisar—in a statement—took a jibe at PML-N’s top brass over making ‘humiliating excuses’ for not granting him ticket for general elections 2018.
Nisar urged inhabitants not to make a joke out of the ticket issue. He inquired that whether it had happened in the past that senior politicians had appeared before party’s parliamentary board for seeking ticket.
Meanwhile, PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif is mulling over contesting general elections 2018 from as many as three constituencies of Karachi.
