Begum Kulsoom Nawaz, wife of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, has been diagnosed with throat cancer, Pakistani media reported on Tuesday,
According to British doctors treating the former premier’s wife, her cancer can be treated.
Kulsoom’s treatment will begin in a few days, say the London-based oncologists.
Maryam Nawaz, daughter of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, will run the election campaign in Begum Kulsoom’s absence. Kalsoom Nawaz is contesting the by-elections of NA-120, Lahore seat that fell vacant after the Nawaz Sharif stepped down from the office of Prime Minister in the wake of Supreme Court decision on July 28.
The Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) candidate for NA-120 won’t participate in the initial campaigns for the constituency.
Nawaz won the seat by a substantial margin in 2013’s general elections, defeating Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s Yasmin Rashid, who is again contesting for the seat this time around.
The former premier’s wife suddenly left for London for medical checkups at the time when nomination papers for NA-120 were being scrutinised.
The Lahore High Court Appellate Tribunal, on August 21, rejected all appeals filed against the nomination papers of PML-N candidate Begum Kulsoom Nawaz for the NA-120 by-poll.
