In a series of political engagements in Murree, local leaders of that and neighboring areas held a meeting with Nawaz Sharif, expressing their interest in him entering the electoral arena from the region.
During the meeting, the local leadership highlighted internal differences within the party and provided insights into the evolving political landscape.
The potential absence of former Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi from the upcoming general elections has intensified interest on the Murree seat among various candidates.
Party sources revealed that Shahid Khaqan Abbasi’s son and the family of former provincial general secretary Raja Ashfaq Sarwar are among those expressing interest in the PML-N ticket from Murree.
The increasing number of candidates for the Murree seat has led to visible differences within the party.
In response to this, the local leadership officially invited Nawaz Sharif to consider running for election from Murree.
The leaders conveyed that if Nawaz Sharif decides to contest from Murree, it would likely unite the party and boost enthusiasm among its members, ultimately resolving internal differences.
Acknowledging the situation, Nawaz Sharif instructed the local leadership in Murree to work towards ending their internal disputes.
The decision regarding the party ticket for Murree will be finalized after recommendations from the parliamentary board, and Nawaz Sharif will have the ultimate say in the matter, according to party sources.
