MANSEHRA: As many as 26 candidates are in the run for two National Assembly (NA) constituencies of Battagram and Kohistan districts and a tough competition is expected among Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl and independent candidates.
According to local political analysts, independent candidates on both NA-22 Battagram and NA-23 Kohistan are in a position to win both the seats but the PML-N and the JUI-F have also fielded appropriate candidates on these two constituencies.
Though electioneering in upper parts of Hazara is yet to gain the boost, candidates are struggling to convene corner meetings to attract voters in both the districts.
For NA-22, Battagram, a total of 31 candidates had submitted their nomination papers. However, after withdrawal and rejection of nomination papers now only 12 candidates are in the field.
In this constituency, a tough competition is expected among independent candidate Prince Nawaz Khan, Alamzeb Khan of the PML-N and Qari Muhammad Yousaf of the JUI-F.
Fourteen contestants are trying their luck for NA-22. A tough competition is expected among Malik Saeed Khan of the PML-N, independent candidate Sarzameen Khan and Mehboobullah Jan of the JUI-F.
