PPP’s Mir Shabbir Bijarani to contest for PS-6 Kashmore unopposed

Pakistan Peoples Party leader Mir Shabbir Ali Khan Bijarani will contest for the PS-6 (Kashmore) constituency unopposed, sources reported.
The nomination papers of Bijarani’s sole competitor were rejected by the returning officer (RO).
The returning officer issued a public notice declaring Bijarani winner in the said constituency.
According to the Election Commission of Pakistan spokesperson, if any candidate is contesting unopposed then a public notice over the candidate’s win is issued, adding that the notification regarding the win will be issued after the July 25 elections.
Interestingly, Mir Shabbir Ahmed Bijarani had earlier announced parting ways with the PPP and joining the Grand Democratic Alliance (GDA). However, it was later reported that he rejoined the PPP and settled his differences following a meeting with party co-chairperson Asif Ali Zardari in Islamabad.
Bijarani is also the son of deceased PPP leader Mir Hazaar Khan Bijarani, who had shot dead his wife and then committed suicide with the same weapon.
Former Sindh Planning and Development Minister Mir Hazar Khan Bijarani and his wife Fariha Razak Haroon were found dead at their home here in Karachi’s Defence locality on February 2.
