PTI to boycott by-election on NA-149

MULTAN: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Monday announced that the party was boycotting the by-election for NA-149 in Multan, ARY News reported.

The seat declared vacant after Makhdoom Javed Hashmi’s resignation.

Qureshi, in a statement, announced that his party will not be contesting by-elections for NA-149.

Javed Hashmi while attending recent joint sitting of the parliament had sought approval of his resignation from NA-149, which was later accepted.

Hashmi, a veteran politician from southern Punjab, had distanced himself from the protest sit-ins organised by PTI and Pakistan Awami Tehreek in Islamabad.

Monday (today) is the last date for filing nominations. The by-election for NA-149 is scheduled to be held on October 16.
