Minister: (We will defeat PTI with wider margin in NA-122, NA-154: Pervaiz Rashid)

ISLAMABAD: The ruling Pakistan Muslim League-N has announced that it will defeat the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf with a wider margin in NA-122 and NA-154 constituencies.

Talking to reporters here on Thursday, Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Senator Pervaiz Rashid said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif took the decision to re-contest elections after consenting fellow party members.

He said former National Assembly speaker Sardar Ayaz Sadiq will re-contest elections for the NA-122 constituency. “Ayaz Sadiq will not take stay order from the Supreme Court,” he added.

Answering a question, the minister said that the PML-N will take decision regarding NA-125 constituency after the return of Khawaja Saad Rafique.

On August 26, an election tribunal in its verdict disqualified PML-N lawmaker Mohammad Siddique Khan Baloch and declared NA-154 vacant.
