PTI candidates for Punjab by elections: PTI announces candidates for by polls

The PTI announced its candidates for the July 17 Punjab by-elections on Monday, hoping to reclaim the seats it lost last month.

On May 23, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) de-notified twenty-five MPs — 20 elected on ordinary seats and five on reserved seats — for voting for Hamza Shahbaz in the chief minister’s election against party lines.

The ECP ordered earlier this month that the allocation of reserved seats — three for women and two for minorities — will be announced after the by-election for 20 vacant Punjab Assembly seats was completed.

The PTI had sought the ECP to release the notice based on the present numbers in the Punjab Assembly in order to secure the reserved seats, but the election commission decided that it would notify the allocation of reserved seats after the by-election on July 17 — and the new party position is created.

The by-elections will take place on PP-7, PP-83, PP-90, PP-97, PP-125, PP-127, PP-140, PP-158, PP-167, PP-168, PP-170, PP-202, PP-217, PP-224, PP-228, PP-237, PP-272, PP-273, PP-282 Layyah, and PP-288.

PTI Central Information Secretary Farrukh Habib stated on Twitter on Monday that the party’s parliamentary board had cleared the candidates’ list for the by-elections and had awarded tickets to the appropriate persons.

The party had assigned 18 seats, according to the former state minister, and the candidates for the remaining constituencies — PPP 237 and PP 170 — will be announced later.

The list:

  • Shabbir Awan PP 07,
  • Hasan Aslam PP 83,
  • Irfan Niazi PP 90,
  • Ali Afzal Sahi PP 97,
  • Mian Muhammad Azam PP 125,
