PS-41, Sanghar, Sindh
Hassan Askari has been involved in left politics and organizing work for more than fifty years, starting off as a worker in the National Awami Party and the Pakistan Kissan Committee in the 1960s. He has since been part of the leadership of numerous progressive parties such as the Pakistan Socialist Party, Awami Jamhoori Party, and the National Workers Party. Hasan Askari has been intimately involved in every major political movement in Sanghar for the past four decades and is a well-respected political figure in the district. It is on this basis that he will be standing for elections against the might of the Pir of Pagara and other entrenched scions of Sanghar!
Hassan Askari currently serves as AWP’s federal peasants secretary.
