Under the seat adjustment agreement, the MML will field more than 200 educated candidates. They will contest the elections on the AAT’s election symbol chair,” Ahmad Nadeem, an MML spokesperson, told PTI today.He said there are many political figures, who have joined the MML, and it has awarded them AAT tickets.
