By-elections: Fiza Gilani might contest from her father’s seat
MULTAN: Fiza Gilani, daughter of Yousaf Raza Gilani, might contest the by-elections from her father’s seat NA-151 Multan after his disqualification, Express News reported on Wednesday.
According to sources, the final decision regarding Fiza contesting the election has not been taken yet, but the issue is under consideration. Gilani has two other sons, Qadir Gilani who is an MPA from Rahim Yar Khan and Ali Musa Gilani who was also recently elected as an MNA on Shah Mahmood Qureshi’s seat.
The NA-151 seat was left vacant after the Supreme Court disqualified Gilani from the post of prime minister on Tuesday. He is ineligible to contest elections for five years.
Express News Multan bureau chief Shakeel Anjum reported that it is still unsure who will contest on the seat from Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP).
Sikandar Bosan, also contesting from the seat, had shifted his allegiance from Pakistan Muslim League – Quaid (PML-Q) to Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), and the latter has decided to boycott the by-elections. However, Bosan told Express News that he will not leave the constituency empty and either he or his brother will contest the elections on the seat.
Malik Ishaq Bucha will also be contesting from the seat from PML-Nawaz.
