Malik Shakeel Awan from NA-55 Rawalpindi from PML-NBy Haris Hashmi • Dec 26th, 2009 • Category: Politics • 144 Comments
It seems that PML(N) once again wants to degrade the companion of former dictator Pervez Musharraf Sheikh Rashimd Ahmad by dishing ticket of PML(N) to a party worker from the grass root level instead of bringing out some frontline leader from somewhere else.
Malik Shakeel Awan hails from a very ordinary background but he has been a prominent face during the PML-N backed protests and rallies in that area and he has been with the party from the onset and is loyal to the party leadership which is all important at the end. He is the personal choice of Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan and he is poised to win this site from quite a margin.
One hopes that after winning Shakeel Awan won’t get indulged in some foolish mistake like his predecessor who was caught in a examination cheating scandal.
