Ali Tareen not to contest 2018 elections amid educational commitments


Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Jehangir Tareen’s son Ali Tareen on Saturday announced not to contest the forthcoming election citing his inability to give time to politics due to education.

In his video message, Tareen had received nomination papers from National Assembly constituency NA-161 Lodhran.

He said that the party ticket should be given to the best candidate. “Best candidate is the one who works for his party round the clock.”

Tareen said that he “cannot give time to politics due to his education.”
