ISLAMABAD: Former federal minister Daniyal Aziz has opted to run as an independent candidate in the upcoming 2024 elections.

This decision comes on the heels of the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) unveiling its list of election candidates.

From Narowal, Daniyal Aziz has been out of the race as the party fielded Chaudhry Anwarul Haq from the constituency. PML-N Election Cell Ishaq Dar issued a notification.

Daniyal Aziz came into limelight after PML-N issued a show-cause notice to him for violating party rules by posting controversial tweets on X, formerly Twitter, and a statement on TV channel holding his own party leader Ahsan Iqbal responsible for hike in prices.

Daniyal Aziz in a TV talk show said that inflation is a big threat to the nation and he and his wife will contest election as an independent candidate to fight against the increased prices.

Raja Osama Ashfaq, son of former provincial minister Raja Ashfaq Sarwar (late), has been awarded the PML-N ticket from NA-51.
