Rafique Jamali, won this seat by a margin of 15,000 votes in 2002. His closest challenger then was the PMLQ’s Ahmed Khan Lund. In 2008 Liaqat Ali Jatoi won an adjoining seat, NA-233, in the 2002 competed from this seat but lost to Mr. Rafique Ahmed Jamali with quite wide margin owing to the murder of Benazir Bhutoo and poor performance of PML-Q federal and provincial government. In 2007activists vented their fury against the former federal minister and chief minister (1996 government) by torching his properties in Dadu in the aftermath of Benazir Bhutto’s assassination.
Lately Liaqat Jatoi formed his own party with the name of “Awami Ittehad party” and it is expected that he will be in position of uniting all anti peoples party forces to give tough time in coming elections.
