ISLAMABAD: Pakistani nuclear scientist Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan has decided not to contest general elections in May, but will support his party and its allies on the campaign trail, a party spokesman said Friday.
Khan last November registered his Tehreek-e-Tahafuzz Pakistan or Save Pakistan Movement (SPM) to contest general elections for the first time and was allotted the symbol of a missile on request.
"Doctor Abdul Qadeer Khan will not take part in the election, but he will continue to befittingly support his party and its allies," party spokesman Rohail Akbar said in a statement.
"The party candidates and our allies have obtained nomination papers and they will stand for election in all parts of Pakistan," Akbar said.
The party is campaigning on a ticket to end corruption, inflation and power cuts.

KARACHI: Pakistan has already achieved the current financial year’s export target of 0.2 million tons of kinno, while the export still continues, Geo News reported on Friday.
Russia emerged the biggest buyer, where 40 percent of Pakistan kinno was exported.
Pakistan Fruit Exporters Association’s chairman, Waheed Ahmad said that over 0.221 million tons of kinno worth $132.7 has thus far been exported. He said that the ministry of commerce allowed timely export of kinno that resulted in meeting the target.
Besides Russia on the top, Middle East, East Europe, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Canada, Sudan and Malaysia were the prominent buyers of Pakistan kinno during the current fiscal year.
Waheed Ahmad said that 80 thousand tons of kinno could not be exported to Iran due US ban that led to commercial banks failure to issue export form, while 11 days transport strike in the country also inflicted millions of dollar loss to kinno exporters.
ISLAMABAD: The Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) has sent the summary seeking a decrease in the price of petroleum products to the Petroleum Ministry.

The summary will be forwarded by the Petroleum Ministry to the Finance Ministry.
TOKYO: Stressing the need for jacking up exports of fruit, Ambassador of Pakistan to Japan, Farukh Amil, said that Pakistani mangoes with their irresistible taste would certainly attract the Japanese market, Geo News reported.
Speaking to a delegation of Sindh Mango Growers from Pakistan and the Japanese importers here, he hoped that Pakistani mangoes would be marketed in Japan, meeting all the Japanese standards, this year.
He said Pakistan produces very high quality world-class fruits and vegetables, which are excellent in taste. He said despite a huge agriculture market in Japan, Pakistani products are largely absent which calls for unhindered efforts on the part of Pakistani exporters to find ways and means to increase and sustain exports in the world markets.
The Ambassador reiterated the three Ps i.e. preservation, packaging and presentation for marketing the products in Japan or elsewhere in the world. He urged the delegation to meet the Japanese standards of packaging. He assured the Pakistani businessmen and Japanese importers of the Embassy’s full assistance in marketing the mangoes and other fruits and vegetables to Japan.
Earlier, Mahmood Nawaz Shah on behalf of the visiting delegation gave a briefing about the quality and export potential of Pakistani mangoes to the world market in general and Japan in particular.
He informed that Pakistani mangoes were being successfully exported to the Middle East and Europe. He hoped that the Pakistani mangoes would find a good market in Japan.
Earlier the delegation, guided by Dr Talat Imtiaz, held meetings at the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fishery and Narita Airport Quarantine Authorities.
The delegation also visited fresh fruit vegetables farms and the famous Tokyo Metropolitan Ohta Fresh Market. The delegation is scheduled to visit a host of other agricultural farms and orchards in different parts of Kansai region
