Toba Tek Singh (Saturday, January 2, 2016) – By poll is being held in provincial Punjab Assembly constituency of PP-89 Toba Tek Singh on Wednesday, January 6, 2016. There is three way contest is being witnessed in this by poll. There are three front runners candidates, names and their party affiliation is given below:-

There is very interesting situation being created. As PTI has been splitted into two groups. PTI’s Chairman of human Rights Commission Mr. Riaz Fatiana is leading election campaign of Syed Sonia Raza Shah instead of his party candidate Mr. Rana Shafiq. On December 29, 2015, PTI central leader Mr. Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar addressed a election rally in support of Rana Shafiq. After three days higher ups of PTI and Ch Muhammad Sarwar inserted pressure on Rana Shafiq to withdraw his candidature in favour of Sonia Raza Shah. Then Mr. Rana Sahfiq refused to do so and announced to contest election on the election symbol of “Bat”. Riza Fatiyana has termed Ch. Muhammad Sarwar, a agent of Sharif brothers, Who is destroying party on behalf of Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif. On the other hand PTI’s district leader Chaudhry Ashfaq Ahmad has made allegation on Riaz Fatiana for working for the success for the PML-N candidate.
Currently PMLN’s candidate Syed Qutab Ali Shah Alias Ali Baba is leading in all the way over his opponents like PTI and Sonia Bibi. But final decision will be made by peoples of Pir Mahal on the polling day of Wed, Jan 6, 2016.
