NA-120 by-poll: Kulsoom Nawaz's nomination papers accepted

LAHORE: Rejecting all the objections raised by the Pakistan Awami Tehreek and the Pakistan People's Party, the Returning Officer on Thursday accepted nomination papers of Begum Kulsoom Nawaz, the wife of former minister Nawaz Sharif, for the by-election in the National Assembly Constituency NA-120.

The former first lady and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz candidate left for London earlier in the day. She will return to Pakistan on September 23, image of her ticket shows.

She was to appear before Returning Officer for the scrutiny of her nomination papers today.

Kulsoom Nawaz left for London Thursday morning via flight PK-757.

The by-elections for the National Assembly seat that fell vacant after Nawaz Sharif's  disqualification by the Supreme Court in Panama Papers case on July 28, will be held on September 17.

Today was the last day for scrutiny of nomination papers.

Kulsoom Nawaz’s nomination papers were challenged by Awami Tehreek’s Ishtiaq Chaudhry, who filed the objections with the returning officer claiming that though Kulsoom disclosed her Iqama [foreign work contract] in the nomination papers, she failed to disclose the salary received through the contract.

Kulsoom’s papers were also challenged by Pakistan People’s Party candidate Faisal Mir.

NA-120 Returning Officer (RO) Mohammad Shahid accepted the objections for scrutiny and will scrutinize the papers today.

Meanwhile, Returning Officer has accepted nomination papers of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) nominee Yasmin Rashid for NA-120.
