Ostensibly, it seems that Chaudhry Nisar has parted ways with Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) as the former interior minister will contest elections against PML-N’s candidate engineer Qamar ul Islam for a seat in the 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 a ticket for general elections 2018.
