Na-151 by-elections: PML-N backs independent candidate


The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz announced on Friday to support an independent candidate backed by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf for the NA-151 by-elections to be held on July 19.

PML-N’s District President Multan Bilal Butt officially announced his party’s support for Shaukat Bosan, brother of Sikandar Bosan of the PTI, after their candidate stepped down on Thursday and rejoined the Pakistan Peoples Party.

Ishaq Bucha had served for more than 25 years in the PPP and had resigned in 2012 to join the PML-N in hopes of winning the by-elections in NA-151.

Independent candidate Bosan

Earlier this week, Senator Zulfiqar Khosa and Senator Pervez Rasheed secretly met Bosan to convince him to join the PML-N, but he had refused and told the media afterwards that he would continue to support the PTI.

Sikandar Bosan, the former minister for food and agriculture, had joined the PTI, after leaving PML-Quaid.

PML (N) has more votes in NA-151 as compared to PTI. Bosan should quit PTI and join PML(N).

Bosan won 2 elections during his life time and both on the ticket of PML(N). He should waste no time and immediately join PML(N). He will ruin his political career in PTI.
