NA 59 Attock Party Position 2013 Elections:
Sardar Saleem Haider who is currently serving as a minister and enjoys a huge public support. He will be a favorable candidate from NA 59 Attock once again on PPP ticket.
Strength of Major Tahir Sadiq Group can’t be denied and this group will also play a significant role in 2013 elections.
PML-N is also striving hard to gain more and more strength in NA 59 but current ground situation doesn’t seem much favorable for PML-N.
PTI is not a political force in NA 59 and tsunami failed to hit this region. PTI will surely bring some new face in 2013 election from here but only a miracle can bring them to the victory.
