Maryam Nawaz withdraws from NA-125 after 'pencil' symbol allotment
ISLAMABAD - A lawyer of Maryam Nawaz, daughter of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, has filed an application with the Returning Officer to withdraw nomination papers of his client from Lahore's NA-125 constituency.
In the application, Maryam stated that she did not want to contest elections from this constituency where Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf has fielded Dr. Yasmin Rashid.
The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader has asked the Election Commission of Pakistan to not publish her name and electoral symbol on the ballot papers.
The plea comes as the election body issued election symbol of 'pencil' to Maryam Nawaz as an independent candidate in NA-125 after his lawyer failed to withdraw the nomination papers.
