NA 69 Khushab I seems to be a haven of turn coats. In general elections 2002 Sumaira Malik (daughter of Malik AllahYar Khan and niece of Farooq Khan Laghari LATE) won this seat on ticket of National Alliance. She defeated Malik Umar Aslam Khan of PMLQ in 2002 elections. In 2008 general elections of Khushab I Sumaira Malik joined PMLQ and contested elections on PMLQ ticket however ex PMLQ candidate Umar Aslam decided to contest elections as independent candidate and lost by only 633 votes after a very close contest.
Sumaira Malik later joined PMLN and Umar Aslam Khan joined Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf. So in upcoming elections it will be again these two candidates but once again from different party platforms.

It will be once again a battle of individuals more than political parties. Sumaira Malik from National Alliance to PMLQ to PMLN will again be looking to contest on her personal vote bank as PMLN is foud no where in past 2 elections.
On the other hand Umer Aslam Khan from PMLQ to PTI might be able to turn the tables this time as Laghari Family members (apart from Sumaira Malik) joined Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf as well and this can cause a huge damage to vote bank of Sumaira Malik.
