PTI leader Zulfi Bukhari withdrew his nomination for the upcoming Senate elections on Saturday, citing legal obstacles surrounding the confirmation of his nomination papers.

Bukhari claimed his nomination faced “false and illegal hurdles,” despite possessing the required legal documentation. While his lawyer, Salman Akram Raja, expressed optimism about a legal victory, Bukhari opted to withdraw his nomination to avoid potential repercussions of challenging the confirmations of fellow PTI nominees, Allama Raja Nasir Abbas and Hamid Khan.

In a statement posted on X, Bukhari stated, “Challenging their notifications could create internal friction within the party,” emphasising his unwavering loyalty to PTI and prioritising party unity.

A longstanding PTI member, Bukhari emphasised that personal ambitions pale in comparison to the party’s success. He declared, “Senate seats or any positions hold little meaning compared to serving our nation and achieving freedom.”

Bukhari extended congratulations to Allama Nasir Abbas, who will now fill the Senate seat, praising Abbas’s steadfast support for former prime minister Imran Khan and expressing confidence in his ability to effectively represent the party in the Senate.
