The Pakistan Peoples Party initiated a ‘hunt’ to enlist a political candidate strong enough to inflict a crushing defeat on Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan in the upcoming elections.

However, the ruling party’s endeavour has reaped no results and the hunt has been termed a failure, the Express Investigative Cell (EIC) has learnt.

According to sources, the top brass of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) has been looking to find a suitable candidate for the past two years to fight against Nisar in the upcoming general elections.

The leader of the opposition, like before, will contest the polls on two National Assembly (NA) seats – NA 52 and NA 53 – and on one Punjab Assembly seat, PP 7.

PPP eyes Nisar as a tough competition and hoped to block his entry in parliament.

During their five-year tenure, Nisar, as the opposition leader, attacked policies crafted by the federal government, and has been an unflappable and unriendly leader of the opposition.
