Imran Khan nomination paper accepted from Takht-e-Lahore’s NA-122 seat


Lahore: Putting aside objections over leading political figures of the country, Election Commission has approved nomination papers of Imran Khan, Shahbaz Sharif and Nawaz Sharif.

Imran will be contesting from NA-122 Lahore, which is vital in terms that Punjab’s capital city is called as Takht-e-Lahore. Being a stronghold area of Sharif brothers, it will be a test case for Khan and his newly emerged party, Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaaf, to win against the candidate of PMLN.

Nawaz Sharif, the leader of Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz, will be contesting from NA-68. Several surveys have shown a growing popularity of the party, making political analysts believe that he could win the seat quite comprehensively.

Shahbaz Sharif’s paper are accepted from PP-247 Jampur showing that he would be considering leading the Punjab province in next term too instead of moving to national assembly.
