LAHORE: On Friday, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz President Shehbaz Sharif plea rejected to recount the vote in the closely contested NA-249 constituency of Karachi.
In the July 25 General Election, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s Faisal Vawda won by 600 votes, beating Shehbaz Sharif, who secured 34626 votes.
Separately, PTI’s Aleem Khan’s plea for a vote recount in NA-129 Lahore has been approved by the Returning Officer (RO). The RO has summoned the winner, PML-N’s Ayaz Sadiq Saturday at 10am.
Khan in his plea stated the constituency’s results stand in contrast to facts, adding that the polling agents were not provided with Form 45, which is a statement of the count.
