PPP swings into election mode with 'sword' symbol
The party had been contesting elections on the symbol of Arrow, however, PPP’s Secretary General Nayyar Hussain Bukhari had requested the Election Commission of Pakistan to allot party its original electoral symbol of the sword.
The election regulator heard the arguments after which a five-member committee allotted the Bilawal Bhutto Zardari-led party, the symbol of its choice.
Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz was allotted the symbol of the lion, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf allotted bat, Jamaat-e-Islami given scale, PPP Parliamentarians allotted arrow, while Awami National Party and Awami Muslim League received lantern, and pen and inkpot respectively.
On the occasion, the Chief Election Commissioner Justice Sardar Muhammad Raza Khan, remarked that political parties are eligible for all those electoral symbols over which there is no dispute.
Additionally, the leaders of both factions of Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan, PIB's Farooq Sattar and Bahadurabad's Amir Khan, also appeared before the ECP.
"In our view, there is no dispute in Muttahida Qaumi Movement," said Cheif Election Commission and allotted the party its desired symbol.
