Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter Maryam Nawaz will be contesting from the National Assembly (NA)-127 in Lahore and from Punjab assembly constituency PP-173 respectively in the upcoming general elections in the country on July 25.
The PML-N’s parliamentary board has also approved Maryam’s candidacy from the NA-127 constituency, Geo TV reported.
Maryam had earlier submitted her nomination papers to contest in NA-125 and NA-127 seats in Lahore and from Punjab assembly seat PP-173.
The returning officers (ROs) approved Maryam’s candidacies. However, she would be now contesting the polls from NA-127 and PP-173 seats.
Earlier, Maryam announced that she would contest elections from NA-120, which is considered as the bastion of the Sharif family and was represented by Nawaz himself, and later by his wife, Kulsoom Nawaz.
Meanwhile, PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif has sought contact details from those who are willing to volunteer for the campaigning of the party.(Minimal edits applied, story generated from syndicated ANI feed)
