Islamabad, July 17 |(IBNS): Pakistan's PML-N might launch ex-Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's grandson Junaid Safdar for election campaign.
Junaid is the son of Nawaz's daughter Maryam.
He is currently in Pakistan, reports said.
He is expected to meet his grandfather Nawaz Sharif, father retired Capt Safdar and mother, all three imprisoned at Adiyala Jail, reported Dawn News.
“Though many PML-N candidates are yearning to invite Safdar in their respective campaigns, it’s being planned to arrange corner meetings in constituencies NA-127 (Lahore-V), from where his mother had planned to contest before her disqualification; NA-132 (Lahore-X), the seat where PML-N president Shahbaz Sharif is a candidate; and in NA-59 (Rawalpindi-II), where incarcerated PML-N leader Raja Qamarul Islam is fighting against former interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan,” a senior party official told the newspaper.
Maryam and Nawaz Sharif are currently lodged in a Pakistani jail.
They were arrested on Friday after they were convicted in a corruption case.
