Finalises more candidates for 2018 polls
Awami National Party has finalised some more candidates for the next general elections. ANP Vice-President Senator Baz Muhammad Khan said the party’s Central Working Committee had decided to award tickets to the candidates well before the announcement of the election schedule. He said the candidate’s position and public perception and his relationship with the party organisation in his or her constituency were also taken into account before the award of ticket. The ANP leader said that having a team for the election would give ample time to candidates and party for canvassing. He said that awarding tickets in advance also facilitated the leadership to address the reservations of the disgruntled workers. He added that party leaders would not have to worry about wooing the disgruntled workers during the election.
