Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader and presidential nominee Aitzaz Ahsan on Wednesday said that he hoped that Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) Chief Maulana Fazlur Rahman will withdraw his candidature. He said, “Maulana Fazl is a friend and I respect him.” “I hope the JUI-F chief will withdraw from the race and support me for the office of president,” he added. “I hope all parties will vote for me as this is a vote of conscience since the presidential election is held through a secret ballot,” the PPP presidential nominee hoped. He also said, “Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has to do justice between candidates.”
