KARACHI: The leadership of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has stopped party president Shehbaz Sharif from contesting elections from Karachi in a party meeting at Lahore, according to sources.

Former Punjab CM has decided to not submit his nomination papers for the three constituencies in Karachi.  PML-N has also been compelled to take ‘U-turns’ in political decisions just like PTI. According to sources, PML-N Sindh Information Secretary Khawaja Tariq Nazeer said that Shehbaz Sharif will not contest elections from Karachi.

Earlier, Senator Saleem Zia had taken nomination papers for Shehbaz Sharif from three constituencies of Karachi. He had announced in front of journalists that Shehbaz Sharif will contest elections from three seats in Karachi and Rana Mashhood was going to submit his papers on Monday.
