Islamabad: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has issued the final list of candidates for by polls on a National Assembly (NA) seat in NA-258 at Karachi.

The by polls in NA-258 Karachi would be held on November 22. The final list includes 17 candidates except any candidate from PML-N. According to reliable sources, Moulana Taj Mohammad Hanfi and 10 independent candidates are all set to contest the polls in the constituency.

A neck-to-neck contest is likely to take place among candidates of MQM, PPP, and PTI. This seat had fallen vacant due to resignation of PML-N MNA, Abdul Hakeem Baloch who later joined PPP.
