'Benazir Bhutto's niece Fatima to contest Pak general elections'
Islamabad: Fatima Bhutto, the writer-activist niece of slain former Premier Benazir Bhutto, will contest Pakistan's upcoming general election from a constituency in Punjab province, her mother has said. 30-year-old Fatima, the daughter of Benazir's brother Murtaza Bhutto, has for long said that she has no plans to enter politics.
However, media reports quoted Fatima's stepmother Ghinwa Bhutto as saying that she would contest the polls from Liaquatpur town in Rahim Yar Khan district. Ghinwa, head of the Pakistan People's Party-Shaheed Bhutto (PPP-SB), made the announcement while addressing a gathering at Bahawalpur in Punjab yesterday.
