However, Nawaz Sharif will give a final approval in this regard, according to sources. The suggestion to keep party’s doors open for Nisar was given by PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif and other senior leaders.
Sources further informed that Senator Pervaiz Rashid is against giving party ticket to Nisar, adding that the former interior minister won’t be issued ticket for he did not submit an application.
They said that Nawaz would also take Rashid into confidence prior to making a final decision.
On the other hand, Nisar has also decided not to directly criticise the PML-N leadership, sources said.
The former interior minister will be contesting the polls from two constituencies each of the national and provincial assemblies.
