List of 146 PML-Q and PPP candidates who got PML-N ticket

    146 get PML-N tickets, though they quit party after coup

    The PML-N has awarded tickets to at least 146 past loyalists of PML (aka PLM-Q) and PPP in 53 national and 93 provincial constituencies in Punjab alone at the expense of its diehard supporters, who have stood ground in the post-1999 party hunt carried out by the Musharraf posse.

    This list includes ‘electables’, who had either jumped the PML-N’s sinking ship after the coup and kept on switching the platforms for making their way to the parliaments or contested elections as independents and then joined the ruling party. These also include the local political octopuses, who even settled for slots in the local governments envisaged by the Musharraf regime for developing his political constituency afresh. And, above all, it includes the names of the PPP stakeholders at the electorate. Some have been part of the previous PPP Government (2008-2013). No matter who had changed loyalty at what point and for any reason, the PML-N hardcore surely has been shown the door. The list also includes those who were accommodated by the PML-N in 2008 as the original sin of joining a dictator can never be overlooked.

    The PML-N chief, Mian Nawaz Sharif, had vowed not to entertain anyone who had left the party high and dry in the post-1999 era when the party was in the hot soup. He took a ‘principled’ stand on the issue, yet a few were given a last-minute pardon after the 2008 general elections for managing the number-game in Punjab. But the number was negligible.

    There was another pack of legislators in the Punjab Assembly for whom the Nawaz Sharif’s stance was relaxed just to keep the Shahbaz Government’s pulse running when the PPP imposed the Governor’s Rule in the province. This gang has to be rewarded no matter if it had to be done at the cost of diehard party-workers, who remained with Mian Nawaz Sharif through thick and thin for nine long years.

    “I have interviewed each candidate myself. It’s an arduous exercise, and I have chosen the best people,” said the PML-N chief in an interview recently. Assessing the PML-N corps for the 2013 contest in the light of Mian Nawaz Sharif’s strong statements, it seems the PML-N believes in another popular principle, ‘every which way but we win’. Though switching parties for political priorities is a norm and considered no offence, it surely does matter when a political party takes a hard stand and later falls victim to electoral success.

    The huge lot of 53 MNA candidates with the PML-N tickets in pocket include Raja Javed Ikhlas (NA-51), former District Naib Nazim from 2001-2005 and District Nazim Rawalpindi from 2005 to 2010 on PML-Q ticket, Malik Aitebar Khan (NA-58), former PML-Q MPA (joined the PML forward bloc), Maj (retd) Tahir Iqbal (NA-60) was PML District Nazim Attock, Ghias Mela (NA-65) had contested from PML platform for NA seat in 2008, Dr Zulifqar Ali Bhatti (NA-67 ) contested MNA election in 2008 on PPP ticket, Sumaira Malik (NA-69) was former federal minister from 2002 to 2007 and won in the national assembly seat on PML ticket in 2008, Abdullah Shadikhel (NA-71) was PML MNA candidate from 2002 and 2008, Humair Hayat Rokari (NA-72) former district Nazim, Rasheed Akbar Niwani (NA-74) was former PML District Nazim of Bhakkar, Col (retd) Ghulam Rasool Sahi (NA-75) was former PML MNA in 2002, Muhammad Asim Nazir (NA-77 ) former PML-Q MNA in 2008, Qaiser Ahmed Shaikh (NA-86) contested from Tehreek-e-Istaqlal in 2002 and an independent candidate in 2008, Ghulam Bibi Bharwana (NA-87 ) was elected MNA on PML ticket in 2002 and 2008, Shaikh Waqas Akram (NA-89 ) former federal minister from PML, Saima Akhtar Bharwana (NA-90 ) won in 2002 as an independent candidate and joined PML and again contested as an independent candidate in 2008 and won, Sahibzada Mahboob Sultan (NA-91 ) former district Nazim Jhang and former MNA on PML ticket, Azhar Qayyum Nehra (NA-100 ) is former PML MPA from Gujranwala, Mian Shahid Hussain Bhatti (NA-103) is former PML Tehsil Nazim, Nawabzada Mazhar Ali (NA-104) is from PPP, Ch Mubashir Hussain (NA-105 ) is from the PPP, PTI and finally landed in the PML-N, Ch Abid Raza (NA-107 ) is from PML, having been alleged to have contacts with banned outfits and was in the PPP in 2002 and afterwards joined the PML after Chaudharys managed his release from the jail, Nasir Iqbal Bosal (NA-109 ) had contested 2002 election on the PML ticket and lost to PPP candidate, Ch Armaghan Subhani (NA-111 ) is former PML Punjab Minister, Zahid Hamid (NA-114 ) had drafted the NRO and November 3 Emergency Order and was former PML State Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs, Daniyal Aziz (NA-116 ) is the former Chairman NRB during Musharraf era, Rai Mansab Ali Khan (NA-137 ) was elected MNA in 2002 and got defeated in 2008 on the PML ticket, Nadeem Abbas Raberra(NA-143 ) is from PML, Rao Muhammad Ajmal (NA-146) contested and lost on the PML ticket, Mian Moeen Wattoo (NA-147 ) contested and lost on the PML ticket, Sheikh Tairq Rashid (NA-149) was a PML candidate for tehsil nazim, Sikandar Hayat Bosan (NA-151 ) was PML MNA, Ashiq Hussain Bukhari (NA-151) is former PML MPA, Pir Rafiuddin Bukhari (NA-154 ) was PML MPA in 2002 and 2008, Muhammad Akhtar Khan Kanju (NA-155) was PML MNA, Syed Fakhar Imam (NA-156) remained with the PML before joining the PPP and losing in 2008.

    Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) has opted for a multitude of former federal and provincial ministers of Pervez Musharraf’s era or their sons for the May 11 electoral match.

    A close look at the who’s who of such figures fielded by the PTI makes an instructive reading.

    Ghulam Sarwar Khan of Pind Nuasheri Taxila has competed for each and every election since 1985 from NA-53 Rawalpindi. He was health minister in the Manzoor Wattoo-Nakai governments in 1994-1996. He was affiliated with Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) for decades, and was considered part of the Aftab Sherpao group within this party. He fought the 2002 elections as an independent candidate with famous election symbol of Chand Tara. After reaching the National Assembly, he joined the PML-Q, was made labour minister and became a close associate of Chaudhrys of Gujrat and Musharraf.

    Musharraf and Chaudhrys patronized him in the hope to put a formidable challenge to his traditional rival Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan of the PML-N. In the 2008 polls, he lost with a huge margin to him from the Taxilla-Wah constituency of Rawalpindi. This time around, the PTI awarded its ticket to him against his usual opponent.

    The PTI has also sponsored Malik Amin Aslam belonging to the famous political family of Attock, called the Maliks of Shamsabad. His grandfather Malik Akram founded the group. His father Malik Aslam vied for every election from the PPP platform. His uncle Malik Qasim used to fight polls from Bhawalnagar. Amin Aslam is son-in-law of PML-N leader Chaudhry Ahmad Saeed, the owner of famous Servis Industries, who is elder brother of PPP stalwart Chaudhry Ahmed Mukhtar. Amin Aslam was minister in the Shaukat Aziz cabinet and ran for the 2008 elections on the PML-Q ticket from NA-57 Attock and lost to PML-N’s Sheikh Aftab.

    Malik Anwar, popularly known as Colonel Anwar, who was minister for cooperatives in the Pervez Elahi cabinet in 2002-2007, is vying for PP-18 Pindigheb (Attock) on the PTI ticket. He lost the 2008 elections to PPP’s Nawabzada Khurrum. Col Anwar belongs to the famous Malik clan of Pindigheb.

    Sibtain Khan, running for PP-46 Mianwali constituency from the PTI platform, was minister for mines and minerals in the Pervez Elahi cabinet. He lost to PML-N’s Feroz Joyia in 2008. It was during his incumbency in 2009 that the Lahore High Court declared as illegal the whole transaction of awarding the famous iron ore mines in Chiniot to a foreign company.

    Musharraf’s famed foreign minister Khurshid Mahmood Kasuri is fighting on the PTI ticket for his traditional National Assembly seat from Kasur.

    Similarly, Musharraf’s railways minister Ishaq Khakwani is vying for a National Assembly seat from Vehari on the PTI platform.

    Afzal Sindhu, who was minister in the Gilani cabinet, is trying his luck under the PTI sponsorship from Haroonabad against Ejazul Haq.

    Senior PTI leader Jehangir Tareen, who is running from Lodhran, was advisor to Shahbaz Sharif and Pervez Elahi, when they were chief ministers, and then industries minister during Musharraf’s era. He resigned his Rahim Yar Khan National Assembly seat after he fell out with his brother-in-law, the present Punjab governor.

    Ajmal Cheema, a multi-billionaire from Sialkot, who has a sprawling business in the United States, was minister in the PML-Q government in 2002. He is aspiring for a National Assembly seat from Sialkot on the PTI ticket.

    Shah Mehmood Qureshi, who was minister in the cabinets of Nawaz Sharif, Benazir Bhutto and Gilani is competing for two National Assembly from Multan and Sindh under the PTI umbrella.

    Former PPP Senator Shafqat Mehmood, who was minister in Musharraf’s cabinet, is testing his electoral politics for the first time from Model Town Lahore on the PTI ticket.

    Former minister in the 1996 Wattoo cabinet Shahnawaz Cheema has got the PTI sponsorship for the National Assembly from Wazirabad against the son of prominent Leaguer Hamid Nasir Chattha and PML-N candidate Justice (R) Iftikhar Cheema.

    Aslam Iqbal, who is the running mate of Imran Khan in NA-122 Lahore as the candidate for a Punjab assembly seat, was minister in the Pervez Elahi cabinet. PTI s chief campaigner in Lahore Aleem Khan was minister for information technology in the same cabinet.

    Akhtar Hussain Rizvi from Sialkot, who was labour minister in Pervez Elahi’s cabinet, is also fighting on the PTI ticket for the Pasroor National Assembly against PML-N’s Zahid Hamid. Another PTI nominee for a National Assembly seat in Khanewal, Hussain Jahenian Gardezi, was minister in Pervez Elahi’s government.

    Humair Rokhari, son of Gul Hameed Rokari of Mianwali, is contesting on the PML-N ticket for NA-72. Gul Hamid was minister for uncountable times in the cabinets of Nawaz Sharif and Pervez Elahi.

    Amjad Khan is son of famous Dr Sher Afgan, who was twice elected to the National Assembly from NA-72 Mianwali and was federal minister and most ardent supporter of Musharraf in the 2002 National Assembly. The young man lost to PML-N’s Humair Rokhari in 2008. Amjad Khan is now the PTI candidate from Mianwali. In 2002, Dr Sher Afgan hit the headlines when he moved the Election Commission of Pakistan for Imran Khan’s disqualification under articles 62 and 63.

    Amjad Khan was picked up after ignoring Inamullah Niazi, a close relative of Imran Khan and aggressive PTI spokesman, which has estranged his brothers too much.

    Waqas Wasi, son of the famous Wasi Zafar, who was law minister in the Musharraf’s regime and gained prominence for his off-the-cuff remarks in TV talk shows, is in the electoral arena as the PTI candidate from Jaranwala, Faisalabad.

    Husnain Iqbal, son of Zafar Iqbal Warraich from Rahim Yar Khan, is a Punjab Assembly candidate from the PTI. Zafar Iqbal was minister of state for interior in the Musharraf government. He vied for the 2008 elections on the PPP ticket and won. This time he has fielded his son from a different political platform.

    Nauraiz Shakoor, a scion of Rajput family from Sahiwal, was minister for oil and gas in the Musharraf government. His son is vying for a National Assembly seat in Sahiwal on the PTI ticket against PML-N’s Pir Imran Shah, who had originally ignited the implication of Abdul Qadir Gilani, son of Yusuf Raza Gilani, in the Haj corruption scandal.

    Nawabzada Mansoor Ali Khan, son of legendary Nawabzada Nasrullah Khan, who was minister in the Wattoo cabinet, is trying his luck for a National Assembly seat in Muzaffargarh on the PTI ticket.

    Hamad Azhar, son of former Punjab governor Mian Azhar, is a PTI nominee from Lahore. Apart from being a close associate of Nawaz Sharif, Mian Azhar was part of the kitchen cabinet of Musharraf and Chaudhrys of Gujrat after the 1999 coup.

    PTI never refused any lota, most of them left already, seeing no chances of this party to come to power. There are many young candidates who are sons, daughters, nephews of former politicians of other parties. If you count everything both parties have more or less the same numbers. PML(N), PPP and PML(Q) are traditional political parties but PTI insists for ideology, where is that ideology?

    Actually PTI has refused Lotas .. their have been names that have been told they couldnt join for a reason or the other.

    Besides, PTI has given fresh faces, 33% tickets have gone to youth, 80% have never been to assemblies before, its not the same story as N. Be reasonable.

    It is true PTI refused Marvi Memon, Kh Saad Rafiq, Ameer muqam etc etc....although MM was written a letter by Chairman of PTI by mistake!

    Imran Ismail nailed MM in a show where she silently took the beating. She wrote the letter, Khan signed it, signed doesnt mean it was accepted.

    My Automata theory exam sheet was signed, I hardly passed, doesnt mean my teacher agreed whatever answers I gave he accepted them as correct.

    MM called Imran and said she wanted to do a PC, Imran stopped her. Wheres that video can someone put it up?

    Well I will give you the examples of refuse:
    PNL(N) refused Lagharis because Khosas the old party hand refused to accept
    PML(N) refused Firdos Ashiq Awan because Khawaja Asif was not agreed
    PML(N) and Bosan agreement was pending for long time because of party workers disagrement but was done just before election.
    Amir Maqam is such a handy man every party will love that person in the party who is so active and have influence on entire division.

    The title of this thread is misleading.

    It should say "List of former PML q and PPP members....."

    By the way, what's wrong in people changing their parties. There is restriction after they get elected and that is good.

    Difference between PTI and PML-N

    PTI gave 35% tickets to 40 year and below.

    PML-N gave 35% tickets to Lotas from PML-Q and PPP.

    PTI gave 80% tickets to candidates who never been into parliament.

    PML-N gave 80% tickets to candidates who have already been to parliament.

    @mawan
    NS once said he will not accept the lotas. Now he licks spit of 146s.
    IK never said like that. I am sure you will find the difference.

    @amir

    And now I need a patwari to tell me that?

    The script was written by MM, IKs signature meant he had reviewed it. Signature was not preceeded with an undertaking that Imran Khan had gone through the content and ws satisifed and accepts the terms.

    Good that you are in CS and not a lawyer.

    Beside one writes "subject to X approval" with signature to make the point that further confirmation is needed. But may be a cricketer does not know that point.

    Why you guys are blaming the great Imran Khan?

    While everyone else may know that signatures represent one's agreement, the great Imran Khan thinks that people want his signatures only for autograph.

    So when he signed the appointment order of Marvi Memon, he was under teh impression that Marvi wanted her autograph.

    Similarly when the great Imran Khan submitted an application for a plot to Chief Minister Nawaz Sharif, he signed it only because he thought Nawaz Sharif was a big fan and was looking for his autograph.
