LAHORE Sept 17 (TNS): Lahore’s NA-120 constituency is perhaps seeing the first of its kind by-polls in its long history where at least 44 candidates have joined the tug of war.

The constituency in Lahore’s heart comprises Islampura, Bilal, Gunj, Raj Garh, Riwaz Garden, Sanat Nagar, Ram Nagar, Dave Samaj Road, Sham Nagar, Sanda, Civil Secretariat, Prem Nagar, Momin Pura Kasurpura, Sanda, Muzang,  Kareem Park , Chauburji,  Khokhar Town and other areas.

Since the disqualification and eventual removal of former prime minister Mian Nawaz Sharif after the Supreme Court verdict in Panama papers case, this constituency which elected him as an MNA has become the hub of the political activity.

Considered a PML-N stronghold, PTI’s Yasmeen Rashid, PPP’s Faisal Mir and PML-N’s Kulsoom Nawaz are being considered as strong candidates.

A total of 220 polling stations and 573 polling booths have been formed for the by-polls

The ECP says that there are 321,786 registered voters in the constituency.

Let’s take a look at how the past elections in the constituency fared for PML-N and other parties.

Then PML-N chief, Nawaz Sharif secured 91,666 votes and beat rival PTI candidate Dr. Yasmeen Rashid by at least 39000 votes, a huge margin.

  1. There are surely a good deal of details like that to take into consideration. Which is a terrific point to bring up. I provide the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where one of the most important factor is going to be working in honest beneficial faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around items like that, but I’m confident that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls really feel the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
