Ac­cord­ing to de­tails, Maryam Nawaz vis­ited the ses­sion court for her can­di­dacy in NA-127 and PP-173 con­stituen­cies while she and PTI’s Yas­min Rashid were also sum­moned for NA-125.

Dur­ing the ses­sion, re­turn­ing of­fi­cer asked Maryam how she will over­come wa­ter and ter­ror­ism is­sues over which, she said that dams will be con­structed to elim­i­nate wa­ter cri­sis while her party has been tak­ing steps to com­bat ter­ror­ism from past five years.

Talk­ing to me­dia, Maryam Nawaz Sharif said that script against her fa­ther Nawaz Sharif has failed. She said that she didn’t bother to hear the verdict of Awami Mus­lim League (AML) Chief Sheikh Rashid’s dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion pe­ti­tion.

More­over, no one has raised ob­jec­tions over the nom­i­na­tion pa­pers of Maryam Nawaz and Hamza Shah­baz so far.
