LAHORE-Former PPP MPA Shabina Riaz Sheikh has reportedly declined party leadership’s offer to be PPP’ nominee from a reserved seat of women in Punjab Assembly.

In the first list compiled by the PPP in respect of reserved seats of women, her name appeared at priority number 33.

But in the revised list, her name has been placed at priority number 5.

“I am thankful to the party leadership for considering my name for Punjab legislator; but owing to my personal engagements, I have sent regrets to the leadership”, Shabina told TheNation.

She said she had already served one term as member Punjab Assembly and now it would be better if some body else is given the chance to serve the party.

Shabina is wife of former Additional Director FIA, Ahmad Riaz Sheikh, also a close aide of President Asif Ali Zardari.
