‘Terrorist’ party cannot be allotted electoral symbol, says Maryam as PML-N finally kicks off campaign – Pakistan


In an obvious reference to the PTI, PML-N Chief Organiser Maryam Nawaz on Monday stated a “terrorist party” couldn’t be allotted an electoral image as her party kicked off its ballot campaign in Okara.

After a lot ado, the PML-N is finally set to unveil its manifesto for the February 8 common elections. For the final two months, the party’s over 30 totally different sub-committees have been sitting collectively to organize its ballot manifesto.

PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif had been perturbed by his party being labelled as the ‘favorite’ of the institution, an impression he desperately wished to dispel throughout the election campaign, an insider had advised Dawn earlier.

Addressing party supporters in Okara at this time, Maryam — with out mentioning the PTI — stated: “Sher [lion] can be allotted sher, however a terrorist party cannot be allotted an election image like different political events.”

“You say your electoral image was ‘bat’, no, it was the danda [baton] that you just had in your hand. The baton that you just used in opposition to the state of Pakistan and the general public,” Maryam claimed.

Her remarks come simply days after the PTI was stripped of its iconic electoral image ‘bat’. After marathon hearings over the weekend, the Supreme Court had on Saturday upheld the Election Commission of Pakistan’s choice to revoke the party’s electoral image and reject its inside polls.
