MULTAN- Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) would support the independent candidate Amir Dogar whereas Javed Hashmi would enjoy the support of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) for the by-elections in NA-149.
18 candidates would be contesting NA-149 by-polls but after the support announced by PTI and PML-N to Amir Dogar and Javed Hashmi respectively, both of them have surfaced as the most significant candidates who have now become politically active, reported sources.
PML-N has frequently been successful in constituency NA-149 against Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and PTI. The fate of Javed Hashmi’s ‘bucket’ and Amir Dogar’s ‘rabbit’ would now be decided by 342,000 voters in 286 polling stations.
PPP’s candidate Dr. Javed Siddiqui is also among the contenders. He has restricted his election campaign to banners and pamphlets.
