PTI candidate likely winner amid opposition bickering

News by:

While PTI’s presidential candidate Dr Arif Alvi is expected to sail through in the elections, the going may get tough for the Imran Khan-led party if the PPP leadership decides to withdraw its presidential candidate Aitzaz Ahsan in favour of the joint opposition nominee Maulana Fazlur Rehman. The Pakistan presidential elections on Tuesday is expected to be a three-way fight between the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf, Pakistan People’s Party and the joint Opposition candidate. Outgoing President Mamnoon Hussain’s tenure ends on September 8 and he had declined for re-election to a second 5-year term.
