Maryam Nawaz files nomination papers from Lahore

Lahore [Pakistan]: Pakistan’s Election Commission on Monday accepted nomination papers filed by former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s, daughter Maryam Nawaz.

Maryam is expected to contest the July 25 elections from two constituencies of Lahore National Assembly (NA) 125 and NA-127.

Earlier, Maryam announced that she would contest elections from NA-120, which is considered as the bastion of the Sharif family and was represented by Nawaz himself, and later by his wife, Kulsoom Nawaz.

Maryam Nawaz, along with Nawaz Sharif, is currently in London to attend to her mother, who is admitted to a hospital there.

Kulsoom is currently on a support machine due to her failing health, after she suffered a cardiac arrest earlier on June 15.(ANI)
