Saifullah family not to contest 2018 elections


Saifullah family has decided not to contest 2018 general elections allegedly due to the issue of an affidavit that has to be submitted with the nomination papers.

According to media reports, the lawyers of the Saifullah family have advised against contesting the polls as they are facing graft references in the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

Quoting Salim Saifullah, the media reported that the family would contest elections after clearing all cases against them. The names of Saifullah family members were also revealed in the Panama Papers.

Anwar Saifullah and Usman Saifullah belonged to PPP, while Salim Saifullah had signed seat adjustment agreement with PTI. Anwar Saifullah, Salim Saifullah, Usman Saifullah, Jehangir Saifullah and Humayun Saifullah would not contest elections.

However, according to Salim Saifullah, the family would not leave the field open as his relatives would be contesting elections from Lakki Marwat.
