97-year-old woman to face off Imran Khan in 2018 elections from Bannu
PESHAWAR - Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan would be facing a strangely odd 97-year-old contestant in one of the constituencies, he has filed nomination papers, in the forthcoming general elections.

Hazrat Bibi, a lady hailing from Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa’s Bannu district, filed nomination papers on Monday for National Assembly’s NA-35 (Bannu) and K-P Assembly’s PK-89 (Bannu III) seats.

Bibi will be contesting against the PTI supremo for the Lower House seat but she is not a neophyte in the political realm as she has previously contested five elections as an independent candidate - she did not emerge victorious in any of her previous struggles.

After filing the nomination papers, Bibi vowed to serve the people of her constituency if she wins the election.

"I will pay extra attention to education for girls if I succeed," Bibi promised.

On the other hand, PTI district president Matiullah Khan and leader Malik Khalid Khan had filed Imran Khan's nomination papers for NA-35 with the local returning officer on Monday.

NA-35 is one of the most populous constituencies in KP with a population of 1,167,892.  Junaid Akbar of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf won the 2013 elections from the said constituency by securing 51,312 votes.
