TikToker Sandal Khattak To Contest For 2024 Elections

Pakistani TikTok sensation Sandal Khattak, known for her controversial presence in the media, has taken an unexpected turn by venturing into politics. Recently, she made headlines by filing nomination papers for a women’s reserved seat, creating a buzz about her sudden transition from the realm of social media to the political arena.

Having previously been in a turbulent friendship-turned-rivalry with Hareem Shah, Sandal Khattak has not disclosed her political alignment with any specific party. The nomination papers were submitted for reserved seats for women in her hometown, with a stated focus on addressing the challenges faced by women, particularly in the northwestern region of the country. She has linked her foray into politics with the broader goal of women’s empowerment.

As the deadline for submitting nomination papers for the upcoming general elections is December 24, 2023, candidates are swiftly filing their nominations, and Sandal Khattak’s entry adds a distinctive element to the political landscape.

It’s worth noting that earlier this year, Sandal Khattak faced legal trouble when the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) arrested her on charges of allegedly leaking private videos of fellow TikToker Hareem Shah. Subsequently, a special court granted her post-arrest bail. The case, initiated based on a complaint filed by Hareem Shah, centered around the alleged dissemination of private videos on social media platforms.

Sandal Khattak’s move from the realm of entertainment to politics adds an intriguing dimension to her public persona, sparking interest and speculation about her political agenda and aspirations for women’s empowerment in the region.
