MULTAN: Fiza Gilani the daughter of Yousaf Raza Gilani, might contest the by-elections for her father’s seat NA-151 Multan after his disqualification.
According to sources, the final decision regarding Fiza contesting the election has not been taken yet, but the issue is under consideration. Gilani has two other sons, Qadir Gilani who is an MPA from Rahim Yar Khan and Ali Musa Gilani who was also recently elected as an MNA on Shah Mahmood Qureshi’s seat.
The NA-151 seat was left vacant after the Supreme Court disqualified Gilani from the post of prime minister on Tuesday. He is ineligible to contest elections for five years.
Sikandar Bosan, also contesting for the seat, had shifted his allegiance from Pakistan Muslim League – Quaid (PML-Q) to Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), and the latter has decided to boycott the by-elections.
However, Bosan told that he will not leave the constituency empty and either he or his brother will contest the elections on the seat.
Malik Ishaq Bucha will also be contesting for the seat from PML-Nawaz. (Agencies)
