Islamabad, In a strategic move ahead of the Senate elections, the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) has finalized its list of candidates representing Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The decision was reached during a meeting led by PPP stalwart Ms. Faryal Talpur, following the directives of PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari. The meeting also saw the withdrawal of two previously nominated candidates in favor of party unity and strategy.

According to Pakistan Peoples Party, the committee’s session was attended by notable party leaders including Syed Khursheed Ahmad Shah, Muhammad Ali Shah Bacha, Shuja Khan, and Faisal Karim Kundi. Faisal Karim Kundi, the Information Secretary of the PPP, announced the withdrawal of Fida Muhammad Khan and Qaizar Khan Miankhel from their Senate candidacies. Their decision to step down came under the guidance of the party’s leadership, aiming to consolidate the PPP’s position in the electoral contest.

Fida Muhammad Khan, initially running for a general seat, and Qaizar Khan Miankhel, vying for the technocrat seat, have made way for new nominees as part of the party’s broader electoral strategy.
