NA 77 Faisalabad Party Position 2013 Election:
Chaudhry Asim Nazir who won 2002 and 2008 elections from NA 77 is now in PML-N. This makes PML-N the strongest political force of NA 77 Faisalabad. However, there are rumors that PML-N may give ticket to Talal Chaudhry instead of Asim Nazir which may make the situation interesting. Two time MNA Asim Nazir will be expecting to get the ticket and it will be a big setback to his politics if he fails to get PML-N ticket.
PPP will be giving its ticket again to Sajjad Ahmad Awan. PPP has its own solid vote bank and PPP will be key contestant in 2013 election from NA 77 but doesn’t seem to be in a winning position.
PTI also enjoys support among educated class and youth in particular but lacks any notable political figures in the area. It will be a really tough job for PTI to fight against political giants with some new face.
