Kulsoom Nawaz nomination papers challenged in ECP
LAHORE: The nomination of Kulsoom Nawaz, who is a candidate of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) in NA-120 by-elections, has been challenged in Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP). 

Kulsoom Nawaz’s nomination papers were challenged by Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) candidate Ishtiaq Chaudhry.

The appeal said after disqualification of Nawaz Sharif, the PML-N itself stands disqualified as a political party; hence, no candidate of the disqualified party can contest the election.

The petition further underlines that there is no president of the PML-N at present; hence, Who will decide on electoral candidate?”

Kulsoom Nawaz did not mention the details of Iqama in the nomination papers, the petition said.

Advocate Sarfraz challenged Kulsoom’s nomination papers in the Lahore office of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Saturday.
