Mansehra (Web Desk) Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf activist Ambreen Swati has announced that she will contest elections for NA-13 as an independent candidate after the returning officer cancelled her party ticket on the demand of party chairman Imran Khan.
Ghulam Abbas, the returning officer for NA-13, handed over the ticket cancellation order to Ms Swati, saying that her party had moved an application for cancellation of the ticket which was earlier submitted to him with the signature of Imran Khan.
The counsels of Ms Swati and PTI earlier completed their arguments.
“I have been deprived of the party ticket, but I am still in the race as the PTI workers are with me. I would secure this seat and present it as a gift to Imran Khan,” she told reporters outside the court.
According to the final lists, as many as 14 candidates are in the running for NA-13, 11 for NA-14, 12 for PK-30, 13 for PK-31, 12 for PK-32, 13 for PK-33 and 11 candidates for PK-34.
