    NA 14 Kohat Party Position for 2013 Elections:

    Situation in NA 14 Kohat has got many twists in recent past. Iftikhar Hussain Gilani joined PTI last year but he has now jumped into PML-N after resigning from PTI. Brother of Pir Dilawar Shah has also joined PML-N and there are also rumors in the Kohat city that Pir Dilawar Shah will also join PML-N before elections. Also, Malik Asad Khan, who got more than 22 thousand votes in 2008 elections as independent candidate has also joined PML-N.

    PTI seems to be in back foot in NA 14 Kohat after resignation of Iftikhar Hussain Gilani. PTI candidate from NA 14 Kohat will be most probably Sheharyar Khan Afridi who got over 12 thousand votes in 2002 elections. He is struggling good to strengthen the party and he also enjoys a good public support.

    PPP and ANP also possess a good vote bank in Kohat region but dismal performance of the coalition government in past 5 years have disappointed the locals very much. It seems difficult for PPP and ANP candidates to gain public trust this time.

    Religious parties will also play a key role in upcoming elections from Kohat. JUI-F will award ticket to Gohar Saifullah most probably but if Jamat e Islami also bring its own candidate, religious vote will get divided and both parties will suffer.

    Thanks for this informative post. I think PTI can gain popularity in NA 14 because there are many voters who wants to support PTI in the national election 2013.Plz can you update us on Tahir-ul-Qadri’s long march. Is it true that government is thinking about to stop the petrol and CNG supply from 10 January to 14 January to stop the long march?

    I belong to NA 14 Kohat and as far as ground reality is; PTI has in fact become more stronger here after joining of Syed Iftikhar Hussain Gilani in PML-N. His joining in PTI was not good for PTI as people of the area are already against him who is a lota changing his parties quite often.

    I disagree with your analysis that PML-N is stronger in this constituency. Look at past results. PML-N candidate couldn’t get even 2K votes in past two elections. Actually now, Iftikhar Gilani, Javed Ibrahim Paracha, Malik Asad Khan and brother of Pir Dilawar Shah, all are eager to get PML-N ticket and their internal rift for ticket will further weaken PML-N.

    Sheheryar Afridi is one of the best and talented candidate for Kohat NA-14, Gilani leftPTI and join PMLN as his nature. so if Sheheryar Afridid will elect for the NA-14 fromPTI, he mustly give a gift to Imran Khan MNA post from Kohat.
