What could be termed a departure from the past practice, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has decided to give a different manifesto for the general elections, 2024, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

The decision was taken at the maiden meeting of the party’s manifesto committee, which was held in Lahore on Sunday with Senator Irfan Siddiqui in the chair.  

Other two members of the committee Khawaja Saad Rafique and Barrister Zafarullah Khan were also present on the occasion.

It was agreed that the manifesto, which would be for a five-year period, would contain the party’s complete strategy and a comprehensive policy.

Different suggestions regarding drafting of the manifesto came under discussion at the meeting.

Speaking on the occasion, Senator Irfan Siddiqui said that this time the party’s manifesto would not be a traditional one as suggestions would be sought from the representatives of different departments, organisations as well as people belonging to different walks of life for its formulation.

Submission of applications for party tickets continues

On the other hand, PML-N’s preparations for the general elections have gathered momentum after the announcement of election date.

Applications for getting the party tickets for the polls are being submitted to the party’s secretariat in Model Town Lahore.

The party has set a deadline of November 10 for the submission of applications for the purpose.

The PML-N has fixed the fee for those applying for ticket for the provincial assembly seat at Rs100, 000, while Rs200,000 will have to be deposited in fee by applicants for the National Assembly seats.
