Pakistan candidate kills himself after sons oppose him

Lahore, Pakistan: Police in Pakistan say an independent candidate for parliament has shot himself to death after his sons disagreed with his politics.

Officer Ishfaq Khan said Saturday that Mohammad Ahmed Mughal was running for office in both the national and provincial assemblies from the central city of Faisalabad.

He said Mughal faced opposition at home as his sons supported candidates from the former ruling party Pakistan Muslim League for both seats.

Under Pakistan’s election laws, both elections in which Mughal was a candidate will be postponed and the process will start again after the regular July 25 elections.
