The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) today rejected allegations of ballot fraud in National Assembly constituency NA-68, Sargodha, where Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was the victor.
PTI Chairman Imran Khan had repeatedly pointed out that more than 7, 000 voters were cast at a polling station against 1500 registered electors.
ECP’s Additional Secretary Sher Afgan said that 7, 000 ballot papers were not yet available at the polling place.
“It seems that 7100 was written due to a typing error,” he pronounced.
Nawaz Sharif held a lead of 95, 244 votes from his closest rival candidate and if 7100 votes were omitted, it won’t alter the results, Afgan said.
