05 February, 2018
LAHORE: Mushahid Hussain Sayed has formally joined the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) after he was reportedly assured of a party ticket for upcoming Senate elections.
The decision was made public after a meeting between Syed and PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif at the latter’s Jati Umra residence. The meeting was also attended by Maryam Nawaz, Senator Pervaiz Rashid and Federal Minister Khawaja Saad Rafique.
Until 1999, Mushahid Hussain remained an active member of PML-N. However, he joined PML-Q during the tenure of former president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf and was elected as a senator from Islamabad on a technocrat seat. His senate tenure ends next month.
