As the campaign for the province’s 20 seats intensifies, control of the Punjab parliament will be at stake on July 17.

The PML-N wants to keep its tight grip on the politically pivotal province of Pakistan. While the PTI wants to seize control of the province from the current administration.

Who could tip the balance in their favour?

In the run-up to the by-polls, we provides an in-depth look into each constituency:

 PP-167 Lahore Profile

Total voters: 220,348

Male voters: 114,374

Female voters: 105,974

Shaista Pervaiz Malik of the PML-N is the MNA for NA-133, which includes PP-167 as a part of it.

Winner in 2018: Nazir Ahmed Chohan of the PTI won the provincial election.

Chohan was disqualified this year by the Pakistani Race Commission for casting a ballot against his party in the Punjab chief minister election.

 PP-167 Lahore Contesting candidates

The PML-N has allotted the ticket to Nazir Ahmed Chohan.

While PTI has fielded Shabbir Gujjar.

 PP-167 Lahore Result Prediction

2012 saw Chohan join the PTI. In the 2018 election, he outperformed the PML-N candidate by more than 2,000 votes.

Chohan now has the backing of the PML-N, which is quite popular in this region. His election campaign is being led by Maryam Nawaz Sharif and Ali Pervaiz Malik of the PML-N.

The brother of PTI leader Khalid Gujjar, Shabbir Gujjar, is campaigning in the district with the assistance of former ministers Hammad Azhar and Shafqat Mehmood.

The Election Commission ordered an investigation into incidents of violence between members of the two opposing parties in the PP-167 constituency, which is the sole one in Lahore. Gujjar has also claimed that the Punjab police raided his offices and detained his employees at his behest.

Given that voters are expected to support a political party rather than a person, the actual struggle will be between the PML-N and the PTI.

It’s also crucial to note that the right-wing TLP won the third-place vote in the constituency in the 2018 election.

 PP-167 Lahore Election activity:

Johar Town, Green Town, and Township are a few of the areas covered by PP-167.

Imran Khan of the PTI and Maryam Nawaz Sharif of the PML-N have both hosted sizable campaign rallies here to energise their supporters.

PP-167 Lahore Constituency problems:

The main concerns are lack of clean drinking water and damaged roads.
