Accepting Rafique’s appeal, a two-member bench of the apex court’s Lahore Registry over ruled  a decision by an election tribunal which had declared poll results in NA-125 null and void and ordered by-election in the constituency.

Rafique had defeated Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf candidate Hamid Khan in the said constituency during the 2013 elections. Hamid had then filed an application in the election tribunal levelling allegations of rigging against the former federal minister.
