The ruling Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PMLN) has issued new party tickets to candidates for the upcoming Senate elections.
The tickets were awarded by party’s Chairman Raja Zafar-ul-Haq.
Raja Zafar-ul-Haq along with other party leaders visited Election Commission of Pakistan today and submitted papers of party candidates for the Senate elections.
Later, talking to the media, PML-N Chairman Raja Zafar-ul-Haq said the party chairman or president has the discretion to issue party tickets. He said consultations are underway to fill the position of party president.
The move came a day after the Supreme Court ruled that a disqualified politician cannot lead a political party, ordering the removal of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif as head of the country’s ruling party.
