The mother of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Usman Dar, Rehana Imtiaz Dar, will take part in the upcoming election against Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Khawaja Asif from NA-71 Sialkot-2, after an election tribunal approved her nomination papers on Tuesday.

She will contest for a National Assembly (NA) seat in the upcoming general elections, set to take place on February 8, 2024. Her papers were earlier rejected by the returning officer (RO) on grounds of grabbing 40-marla land by forgery.

The election tribunal, however, heard her appeal against the decision and annulled the RO’s decision, after which her papers were cleared.
