News by:
The wife of Awami National Party’s (ANP) Haroon Bilour, who was martyred in a Taliban suicide attack during campaigning, won her husband’s provincial seat in by-elections as the ruling party of Prime Minister Imran Khan retained its slim majority in parliament.

Samar Bilour on Sunday won the provincial assembly seat in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province that her husband Haroon, a member of the ANP, had been scheduled to contest in July.
