‘PML-N ends chairman’s parliamentary political career, deny him Senate ticket’


ISLAMABAD: Divides have emerged within the Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz rank and file over Senate ticket distribution as the sources within intimate party circles tell ARY News that the party has put an end to their chairman Raja Zafar-ul-Haq’s parliamentary career by not letting him contest the impending upper-house polls.

According to the information ARY News has learned from the party sources, ex-Prime Minister and PML-N stalwart Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has opposed the suggestion of renewing Haq’s senatorship which expires in the outgoing batch in a matter of days, saying political realities have changed now and now there’s no room for him anymore.

The sources claim it is due to the age of Raja Zafar-ul-Haq that his bid to contend for the Senate seat has been disputed. However, the sources also claim that when the PML-N chairman asked for a ticket for his son, this too was turned down.
