Aitzaz Ahsan hopes Maulana Fazl will withdraw in his favor

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Peoples Party’s (PPP) Presidential Candidate, Aitzaz Ahsan expressed hope that JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman will withdraw his nomination for presidential election in his favour.
Talking to the media outside ECP, he acknowledged that the opposition was in a disadvantageous position because of lack of agreement on a consensus candidate. He said so far there was no consensus among opposition parties on fielding a joint candidate. We will vigorously contest the presidential election, he added. “Article 63-A of the Constitution states that MPAs and MNAs of a specific party have to vote for their party candidate,” he said.
Stating that this a time for ‘justice’, Ahsan added, “Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has to do justice between candidates.”
Responding to a question regarding who is likely to win the presidential election, the PPP leader said, “Voters have to decide this and I hope some PTI lawmakers will also vote for me.”
Earlier today, Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) scrutinised and approved the nomination papers of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s Dr Arif Alvi, Ahsan and Maulana Fazl for the presidential election.
