Tahir-ul-Qadri to contest in upcoming elections of 2013

According to sources, a high level meeting is being held in Lahore, chaired by Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri and other leaders, where it will be decided that Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri will participate in the upcoming elections from the platform of Awaami-Tehreek.

Senior leaders of Minhaj-ul-Quran are currently debating the matter and speculating the advantages and disadvantages of contesting the upcoming elections.

It is speculated that the Long March in Islamabad has opened new horizons for Mr. Qadri in Pakistan’s political playground. He and his party are ready to convert the immense praise and support received during the Long March on the streets, into an electoral vote.

Sources say that Awaami Tehreek is highly likely to be registered with the Election Commision of Pakistan as contestant for General Elections 2013.
