Kalsoom Nawaz for NA-120?

Sources also claimed on Tuesday that Nawaz Sharif’s wife, Begum Kalsoom Nawaz, has been finalised to be the PML-N candidate for the NA-120 by-poll.

The seat fell vacant when Nawaz was disqualified as a result of the Supreme Court verdict in the Panama Papers case. 

During the course of the PML-N's political consultations in Murree last week, sources had claimed that Shehbaz Sharif could be appointed the party president.
