Meera to contest elections from the ‘Justice Party’ platform

LAHORE: The renowned Lollywood actress Irtiza Rubab, commonly known by her pseudonym Meera is set to contest for elections for one of the reserved seats for women in Punjab Assembly.

Meera’s mother Shafqat Zarar Bokhari confirmed on Wednesday that her daughter will contest the May 11 general election for a provincial assembly seat. “I will file her nomination papers on Thursday (today),” she told media.

Meera will contest the elections from the platform of Justice Party, a little-known group recently formed by lawyers. “She will run for a Punjab Assembly seat, most probably from Lahore,” she said without naming the constituency.

It is likely that Meera will hold a press conference soon where she will announce her plans. She is currently in India working on some projects. “She will definitely bring a change as a politician if she wins the elections. She will work for the betterment of the common people and women,” her mother added.
