ISLAMABAD: Decision on NA-154 will be given today (Wednesday) and it will finally be decided whether Jahangir Khan Tareen, Secretary General Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), will be able to de-seat Siddique Baloch of Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) or will Baloch be able to keep his membership of National Assembly (NA).

Siddique Baloch had won this seat in the General Election 2013 as an independent candidate and joined PML-N afterwards.

PTI leader Jahangir Tareen had challenged this decision in the tribunal. Election tribunal’s judge Justice Rana Zahid will announce the verdict.

Local administration has deployed heavy contingent of police outside the tribunal’s office in Multan as PTI workers have started gathering to support their leader.

Earlier, election tribunal has annuled the election of NA-122 that was contested between Imran Khan and PML-N leader Ayaz Sadiq.
