Kulsoom Nawaz to contest NA-120 by-polls

It has been decided by the party that Kulsoom Nawaz will contest by-elections from NA-120 constituency, according to PML-N sources.

Captain (r) Safdar will submit her nomination papers. Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf candidate Dr Yasmin Rashid has already submitted her nomination papers.

Tomorrow (August 12) is the deadline for submission of nomination papers for NA-120. At least 49 candidates have got the nomination papers but only three of them including Dr Yasmin Rashid of PTI, and two independent candidates Muhammad Shabbir and Michael Haris have submitted their nomination papers.

Kulsoom Nawaz has already signed her nomination papers. It is pertinent to mention here that the NA-120 seat fell vacant after the disqualification of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.
