Noor Bukhari Enters Political Arena Ahead of 2024 General Elections

Former Pakistani film actress Noor Bukhari has decided to step into the political sphere by submitting her nomination papers for the upcoming general elections, which are scheduled for February 8, 2024. This marks a significant shift in her career, as she transitions from the entertainment industry to politics.

Bukhari is contesting as a candidate for a reserved seat for women, representing the Tehreek-e-Istehkam Party (IPP). She is the wife of Aun Chaudhry, a leader of the IPP. The IPP, also known as the Pakistan Stability Party, was founded by Jahangir Tareen on June 8, 2023. The party was registered with the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on October 5, 2023.

Bukhari made a visit to the Provincial Election Commissioner’s office in Punjab to officially submit her documents. This action underscores her dedication to the political process and her preparedness to dedicate herself to the service of the Pakistani people.

Before her political journey, Bukhari was a renowned actor in the Pakistani film industry, also known as Lollywood. She has worked in various movies, with “Mujhe Chand Chahiye” being one of her most famous works. In addition to her film career, Bukhari has also appeared in Pakistani dramas and modeled for TV commercials and fashion campaigns.

In 2017, Bukhari made headlines when she announced that she was leaving the entertainment industry. Following her departure from showbiz, she embarked on a spiritual journey and launched a YouTube channel to share her religious transformation. Her decision to join politics seems to be the next chapter in her diverse and dynamic career.

The ECP is gearing up to conduct the much-anticipated general elections across the country in less than two months. According to the election schedule issued by the ECP, the scrutiny of the nomination papers will continue until the end of this month. Appeals against the acceptance or rejection of nomination papers can be submitted until January 3, and decisions on these appeals will be made by January 10.
