N-League announces to support PTI backed runner in Multan by poll

Multan: The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz has announced to support Shaukat Bosan, a brother of Pakistan Tehreek Insaf Leader Skindar Bosan and an independent candidate for by election in the constituency of Multan NA-151, against Abdul Qadir Gilani, a son of former prime minister Yousuf Raza Gilani.Nawaz Sharif

Shaukat Bosan is a brother of PTI leader Sikandar Bosan and arch rival of Yousuf Raza Gilani in this constituency who defeated him in 1997 polls on PML-N ticket and in 2002 elections on PML-Q ticket.

The seat fell vacant after disqualification of Yousuf Raza Gilani in contempt of court case and Abdul Qadir Gilani is running for the seat vacated by his father.

The PTI rejected a PML-N offer to bring a consensus “PML-N” candidate in these by-elections and in return PML-N will not field any candidate against Sikandar Bosan in the next general elections.

The PTI decided to continue its boycott of by-elections and thus Shaukat Bosan, brother of Sikandar Bosan was launched as an independent candidate not to give the Gilanis a free run.

According to a report , it was argued by PML-N side that because of this local constituency situation, Gilani will continue his propaganda against the Supreme Court that although he was rejected by the judiciary, the “court of the people” still accepted him.
