Larkana: Bilawal to contest election for NA seat
LARKANA: Pakistan People's Party has decided to float their young Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari in the parliamentary politics of the country, ARY News reported on Thursday.
Bilawal Bhutto will contest election from the National Assembly constituency NA-204 in Larkana.
Incumbent lawmaker from the constituency and former law minister of Sindh Ayaz Soomro has submitted his resignation from the National Assembly seat to the party to create vacancy for Bilawal.
National Assembly seat NA-204 has a symbolic importance because Pakistan's iconic former prime minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto had contested election and won the seat twice. Later Begum Nusrat Bhutto had scored election victories from the same constituency.
Incumbent MNA Ayaz Soomro has submitted his resignation to the party leadership and likely to be made Chief Minister of Sindh's Advisor for law, the party sources said.
Ayaz Soomora has said that he has submitted his resignation from the parliament seat to the party's leadership a month ago.
