PPP's Aitzaz Ahsan and Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Monday emerged as the two candidates who will challenge Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf's (PTI) candidate Dr Arif Alvi in the presidential election of September 4, after the grand opposition alliance failed to reach consensus on a single nominee despite several huddles on the matter.

The failure of the opposition parties to field a joint candidate will virtually provide a walkover to the ruling PTI's Dr Alvi, an MNA from Karachi, for the president’s office.

Ahsan filed his papers for the presidential election on Monday morning, hours before the 12-noon deadline.

Meanwhile, a JUI-F spokesperson claimed that Fazl would be the nominee of the opposition parties, with the exception of the PPP.
