Why Mushahid Hussain Gets Back to PML-N
Mushahid’s senate seat is going to an end on 11 March 2018, and he was afraid to loose in senate elections 2018 because PML-Q has not much seats by which he can get in to the Upper house.
There were three options for Mushahid Hussain, to get Senate’s seat.
If we look around three of them, the best one is PML-N, Nawaz’s party enjoys a huge number of seats as compare to supposition.
