Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader and former Federal Information Minister Firdouq Ashiq Awan has withdrawn her candidacy from Sialkot’s NA-110 seat in favour of Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) candidate Usman Darr.
PTI candidate Usman Dar is among the candidate for the seat which also include PML-N candidate Khawaja Asif and JI candidate Arshad Mahmood.
However, she would compete with the opponent candidates from the other own constituency NA-111. It should be mentioned that Awan had submitted her candidacy papers for NA-110 and NA-111.
Sources close to the competing candidates said most contestants had agreed to withdraw in a bid to defeat the PML-N leader.
