Four political heavyweights of the PML-N, who had lost their seats in the general elections held on February 8, are now also out of the race for five National Assembly and Punjab Assembly seats from Lahore for which by-elections are due to be held due to their lack of interest, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Friday.

The party leaders, who are now out of electoral politics, are Rana Sanaullah, Rana Mashhood Ahmad Khan, Khawaja Saad Rafique, Mian Javed Latif.

All these leaders did not file their nomination papers for the by-polls.

On the other hand, former PML-N MNA Ali Pervaiz Malik is a strong party candidate from NA-119.

Similarly, a by-election would also be held for PP-147, the seat won by former Punjab chief minister Hamza Shehbaz in the recently held elections.

The name of Chaudhry Shehbaz is under consideration by the PML-N to contest the election for the seat.

Likewise, a by-election will be held for PP-149, a seat won by IPP President Abdul Aleem Khan.

Another party leader Shoaib Siddiqui will contest the election from that constituency.

Similarly, the PML-N has fielded Rao Shahabuddin from PP-158, Chaudhry Nawaz Chadhar from PP-164.
