LAHORE: PML-N and PML-Q council members will likely elect Shahbaz Sharif and Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi their party Punjab president on Wednesday.

The PML-N is holding intra-party election in Expo centre and PML-Q in the Muslim League House.

PML-Q’s central intra-party election will be held on Oct 21. PML-N’s central election held in Islamabad on Tuesday in which the workers elected Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif their president.

“More than 1,000 council members of the party will elect Shahbaz Sharif as PML-N Punjab president and other office-bearers on Wednesday (today),” PML-N leader and Punjab parliamentary secretary Rana Muhammad Arshad told Dawn on Tuesday.

PML-Q has criticised the PML-N for holding central intra-party election prior to the provincial. “The N-League has committed gross violation in conducting intra-party election. The PML-N held central election prior to the provincial one is a clear violation of the Election Commission’s rules. The ECP should take notice of this,” the PML-Q demanded.
