PML-N leader Maryam Nawaz will arrive in Karachi on April 24 to run the party’s by-election campaign in Karachi’s NA-249, a party spokesperson said Saturday.
The PML-N vice-president will address public gatherings in the constituency and business community in Karachi, said the spokesperson. The by-election in the constituency is scheduled for April 29. The National Assembly seat fell vacant after PTI’s Faisal Vawda resigned following his election as a senator last month. Miftah Ismail is contesting the by-election on the PML-N ticket from the constituency. He is the chairman of Ismail Industries Limited, which manufactures a wide range of confectionery items under the names of CandyLand, Bisconni and SnackCity.
