LAHORE:
An objection has been raised against the nomination papers of Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Chairperson of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), in the NA-127 constituency of Lahore ahead of the upcoming general elections.
The objection, filed on Wednesday by Mohammad Ayaz, a resident of Lahore, points out that Bilawal Bhutto Zardari is associated with the Pakistan Peoples Party Parliamentarians (PPPP) in his nomination papers while holding the position of chairman of PPP.
In his objection submitted to the returning officer (RO), Ayaz argues that PPP and IP are distinct political parties with different party symbols. He notes that the ‘arrow’ is the official symbol of the PPP, while the ‘sword’ is the symbol of the parliamentarians. The objection states that Bilawal Bhutto Zardari is the chairman of PPP, while Asif Ali Zardari is the president of PPPP. According to the Election Act 2017, an individual is allowed to be a candidate from only one party, and Ayaz claims that this situation constitutes a violation of the Election Act.

In a related development, the nomination papers of Nawaz Sharif, the leader of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), for the NA-130 constituency of Lahore were accepted yesterday.
