Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf is busy in announcing mega projects for Gujar Khan region and is using a huge sum of discretionary funds. He is the strongest candidate from NA 51 and PPP can hope to get this seat easily.
Raja Javed Ikhlas has joined PML-N about a year back after leaving PML-Q and this has given a good strength to PML-N in the region. Raja Javed Ikhlas will be PML-N candidate from NA 51 who enjoys a good biradri vote as well apart from party vote. He is expected to have a good contest against Raja Pervez Ashraf.
PTI is also struggling in the region but doesn’t seem to be in a upsetting position. Raja Azeem is a potential PTI candidate from NA 51. Raja Azeem is ex tehsil nazim and is working hard for the party.
Jamat e Islami and other religious parties also enjoy a good public support and possess ideological vote bank but it seems that Raja Pervez Ashraf factor won’t help any of them to bring any surprise from NA 51 Seat.
