PTI gives green signal to Yasmeen Rashid to compete in NA-120


Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has opted to field  Dr Yasmin Rashid as a candidate in by-polls from constituency NA-120 as a one-sided decision by the Supreme Court (SC) expelling Nawaz Sharif from the Prime Minister Office.

“Imran Khan has given me the green signal to compete in the election from NA-120 constituency,” excited Rashid told reporters.

She said, “I have continued my electoral campaign till date”.

Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) is looking to award its ticket to the former ticket-holder Hafiz Zubair, who would also contest elections from the constituency.

It should be recalled that Rashid was runner up in the constituency in a discussion against Nawaz Sharif. She secured over 50,000 votes.
