Maryam Nawaz Lahore constituency changed again, to contest polls from NA-127: report
LAHORE - Maryam Nawaz, daughter of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, has been awarded the party’s ticket to contest from NA-127. She was previously asked to contest from NA-125.

According to a source privy to the development, Pervaiz Malik is likely to get the PML-N’s ticket to contest from NA-125. PML-N leader Bilal Yasin has also expressed his desire to join the election race from NA-125.

“Maryam Nawaz has been given the ticket for NA-127. It is my right to contest in NA-125,” Bilal said.

This is the first time that Maryam Nawaz, the daughter of the former prime minister is participating in polls as a candidate. She would be facing Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) Jamshed Iqbal as the main political rival.

She had also filed his nomination papers from her native area NA-125 and she had also run election campaign of her mother during the by-elections.

The PML-N’s Parliamentary Board has given approval of Maryam Nawaz’s contesting election from NA-127.

However, it was yet to be finalised that who were be awarded party ticket from NA-125, Bilal Yaseem or Pervaiz Malik.
