Tribal elders seek election in NA-38

Peshawar

August 18, 2015

HANGU: The tribal elders have asked the government to hold election in the National Assembly constituency (NA-38) in the central Kurram Agency at the earliest.
Talking to The News here on Monday, Malik Salim Khan, Malik Abdul Wali, Malik Attaullah and Malik Anwar Shah said polling in NA-38 was postponed during the general election on May 11, 2013 because of a suicide attack on a candidate of JUI-F, Munir Khan Orakzai, on May 6.
They said the tribespeople had been facing problems as they had no representation in the National Assembly to resolve their problems. The elders said the poor people of central Kurram Agency had also left homes when the military operation was launched against the militants in Para Chamkani area.
