ECP issues arrest warrants for Imran over ‘contempt

Yaqub has little chance of success given that Kulsoom Nawaz, Sharif's wife, is expected to easily win Sunday's vote.

Pakistani opposition leader and chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) party Imran Khan gestures to supporters during a rally in Islamabad on July 30, 2017.

The seat is being contested by Sharif's ailing wife Kulsoom, who is now recuperating in a London hospital, by Yasmeen Rashid of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party, and about 40 other candidates.

The Supreme Court had asked the anti-corruption watchdog to file the cases by September 8 against Sharif, his sons, daughter, son-in-law and Dar.

A credible source said on Saturday the discussions between Sharif and the visiting officials will involve the current situation of Pakistan, completion of energy projects on a speedy basis and the legal challenges faced by the Sharif family. His party has not lost the seat since it began contesting elections in 1985.

As many as 42 candidates including 32 independents contested election making Very long ballot paper therefore ballot boxes were filled by afternoon in most polling stations and second and third ballot boxes were fill by the end of the polling time. "In our area, work only gets done if you go through [the PML-N's] workers".

Khan, on the other hand, has been relentlessly hammering at the Sharifs for years, calling them the epitome of Pakistan's corrupt political system and calling for a new democratic era in which justice prevails and ordinary people have access to power. They are now in London and will return once the election is over.

A clash between PTI and ruling PML-N workers was also reported.

Maryam Nawaz says she is not concerned about the political impact of the new parties but about "the kind of resources they have".

She insists that she doesn't know "what the future holds" and that she is "very happy working as a PML-N worker" but she is credited with having pushed forward a number of liberal policies in the party, and has always been seen as her father's political heir.
