LAHORE: The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz and the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf are all set to stage their rallies in the provincial capital today (Friday) as election campaign for the by-election in National Assembly Constituency NA-122 enters last day. The PML-N and the PTI have finalized all the arrangements for their rallies in Mazang Chowrangi and Dongi Ground respectively. The PML-N which has chosen the Dongi Ground for the show of power in their stronghold is said to have placed 10,000 chairs at the venue of the Jalsa. PTI chairman Imran Khan, who was defeated in the constituency by N-League candidate Ayaz Sadiq in the general election of 2013, will also address the rally along with other top leaders of his party. Aleem Khan is PTI candidate against Ayaz Sadiq, former National Assembly speaker, who was de-seated by an election tribunal in August this year on PTI petition. On the other hand, Hamza Shahbaz, a PML-N leader and son of Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif, is expected to address the rally in Dongi Ground on the last day of election campaign. The by-election will be held on Sunday.
