Ch Nisar likely to contest polls from NA-63 constituency


ISLAMABAD: Former interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has announced to contest polls from NA-63 Taxila constituency.

On April 30, the disgruntled Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader announced to contest upcoming general elections from three constituencies. Moreover, he stated that he took this decision on the request of the people.

He had announced to contest elections from one National Assembly and two provincial assembly seats. The disgruntled PML-N leader had said that he will contest from National Assembly seat NA-59 and PP-10 and PP-14.

Meanwhile, Nisar has been quietly working on a plan to contest upcoming elections as an independent candidate. He also shared a survey conducted in his native constituency with his close friends, which suggested that at least 70 percent of the area voters wanted Nisar to contest the next elections as an independent candidate.

The ruling party had also tried to locate some candidates in Ch Nisar’s constituency but failed to find a suitable and strong candidate capable to defeat Nisar.
