The by-election for a National Assembly seat in Lahore, that fell vacant with Sharif becoming ineligible to remain a legislator, has brought in the open the split in the party between his daughter, Maryum, and his younger brother, Shahbaz Sharif, who is now the CM of Punjab.
Polls predict a PML-N victory, but it is not clear whether its margin will increase.
The by-election on the seat left vacant after Sharif's disqualification by the Supreme Court, will be held on 17 September. "Some 30,000 voters will be polling their votes on biometric machines", Dawn reported.
