Wife to stand as covering candidate for Musharraf: PML-Q
Islamabad, Sep 14: The ruling Pakistan Muslim League (Qaumi) President Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain has said that Sehba Musharraf would be a covering candidate for her husband President Pervez Musharraf in the presidential election.
Chaudhry Shujaat said that the PML-Q was ready to consult other parties to remove their reservations on the presidential poll.
The Daily Times quoted Shujaat as saying that he had no objections to the return of Kulsoom Nawaz, wife of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, to Pakistan.
Earlier, the central leadership of the PML-Q had requested party’s chief Chaudhry Shujaat to submit his nomination papers for the post of President as a cover candidate for Musharraf.
The PML-Q leaders have expressed concern that if Musharraf is not allowed to contest, the party must have a substitute, sources said. (With Inputs from ANI)
