Khurram Dastgir Khan will be PMLN candidate again in 2013 election from NA 96 and will be a strong contestant as a good number of party vote exists in the region. However, Khurram Dastgir doesn’t enjoy any sold personal vote bank and this weak area may advantage his opponents.

PTI has become a strong political force of NA 96 Gujranwala and enthusiastic workers of PTI are already in the field working hard to grab this seat. S.A. Hameed who is ex mpa and a very well known politician from Gujranwala has joined PTI and is struggling hard for the party. He is expected PTI candidate in 2013 election from Gujranwala NA 96 Seat against Khurram Dastgir Khan. SA Hameed is known for his street politics and an aggressive campaign by PTI workers in this urban constituency can easily turn the game in their favor. Another industrialist Barrister Ali Ashraf Mughal is also working hard to get PTI ticket. He is new in politics but financially very strong.2008 election runner up Khawaja Muhammad Saleh of PPP has also joined PTI and he is also a potential PTI candidate.

Religious vote bank of NA 96 Gujranwala will also play a vital role. Deobandi school of though and Ahl e Hadees school of thought are prominent and every party will be eager to gain their support to add to the party vote bank. However, Qazi Hameed Ullah Khan himself may jump into the battle on JUI-F ticket and can snatch the religious vote.

PPP in NA 96 Gujranwala seems to be on back foot as its 2008 candidate Khwaja Muhammad Saleh is no more in PPP and has joined PTI.
