LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has nominated Javed Hashmi as a candidate for premiership, however he has refused to be a contestant for the premiership but PTI officials are trying to convince him to accept the decision.
The decision was announced at a press conference in Lahore on Saturday.
Sheryar Afridi and Manza Hassan would be the party’s candidates for the election of speaker and deputy speaker of the lower house of the parliament, PTI senior leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi told media after the meeting.
