ISLAMABAD – The daughter of Bushra Bibi, who happens to be the wife of prime minister-in-waiting Imran Khan, has joined Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).
Mehru Hayat, Bushra Bibi’s daughter from her past marriage, joined the Imran Khan-led PTI along with her friend, Farah Khan on Monday.
Bushra Bibi said on the occasion that working to resolve women’s issues remains her foremost priority, Geo News reported.
The first lady-in-waiting was previously married to a senior customs official named Khawar Fareed Maneka, however, the couple parted ways a few months ago.
Imran married Bushra Bibi, his spiritual adviser, in a private ceremony in February this year.
Bushra Maneka is in her 40s and belongs to the Wattoo clan, of which the Manekas are a sub-clan.
The PTI chief has been married twice before. His first marriage was with Jemima Goldsmith, daughter of a British billionaire in 1995. The couple divorced in 2004.
Khan’s second marriage to Reham Khan dissolved 10 months after a public ceremony had taken place in January 2015.
The PTI earlier today formally nominated Imran Khan as the party’s candidate for prime minister, after emerging victorious in the general elections held countrywide on July 25.
