KARACHI: The Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) on Saturday proposed the name of Aseefa Bhutto-Zardari, Benazir Bhutto’s youngest daughter, for contesting elections from Lyari or Tando Allahyar.
Aseefa Bhutto will turn 25 next month, making her eligible to contest elections from NA-248 in Lyari and NA-223 from Tando Allahyar.
She is a registered voter from Tando Allahyar but is interested in contesting the election from Lyari. However, the parliamentary board will finalise the seat she will be contesting from.
PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto will also contest elections in the upcoming polls this year.
The PPP chairman has dispelled all rumours about forming a political alliance, saying, “The party will not forge any alliance in the next general elections and will contest the polls on its own”.
Rejecting the idea of forging alliance with any party, Bilawal has said that the party will step into the elections on its own sign and slogan.
