The seat fell vacant after PML-N MNA Pervaiz Malik died of a heart disease on October 11.
A close contest is expected between the two parties in the absence of the ruling party Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) candidate from the constituency.
The past elections in NA-133 had generally been considered a cakewalk for the PML-N, but now, the scenario has changed due to an effective election campaign of the PPP that was led by its Central Punjab president and former prime minister of Pakistan Raja Pervaiz Ashraf.
The pundits of politics have predicted an upset in the constituency where the PPP has fielded an old guard from Lahore, Chaudhry Mohammad Aslam Gill, who will be contesting against PML-N’s Shaista Pervaiz Malik. However, Ms Malik is likely to get sympathy votes as she is widow of the PML-N leader who died on October 11, following which the seat fell vacant.
