Abrar ul Haq to Contest From NA-131 By Elections

Abrar ul Haq to Contest From NA–131 By Elections

Since the resounding victory of Imran Khan from all 5 constituencies in General Elections 2018, it was widely speculated that which seat he will actual keep as MNA. The closest contest was in NA-131, Lahore where Imran Khan defeated Khawaja Saad Rafiq, a PML-N stalwart.

It was earlier suggested that Imran Khan will keep this seat, however, during recounts, it was revealed that this a very close battle and can tilt any way once appeals will be filed in Election Tribunal. Imran Khan, finally decided to keep his hometown seat of Mianwali and by-elections will be held on all remaining seats.


Many contestants are looking to support of PTI for NA-131, Lahore, however, the most noteable of them is Abrar ul Haq. He had earlier contested elections from Narowal against Ahsin Iqbal and was heavily defeated. However, he has announced to file his nomination papers for NA-131, Lahore during by-elections.

Another close encounter awaits in this constituency as PML-N has somehow maintained their voter base in the city of Lahore despite giving up space in other urban centres such as Multan, Faislabad and Rawalpindi.
