‘Ayaz Sadiq won NA-122 through fraud,’ PTI’s Aleem Khan files plea in ECP


LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Aleem Khan on Tuesday submitted a plea in the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) seeking valid record of transferred votes from NA-122 constituency of Lahore.


The PTI leader reached ECP head office along with MPA Shoaib Siddiqui, however, they could not meet the Chief Election Commissioner. The application was handed over to the Additional Secretary.

The plea states that the ECP record shows that 26,000 new voters were registered and 4,600 votes were transferred during last two years. Only 812 voters personally confirmed that they transferred their votes out of the constituency whereas votes of others were shifted from the constituency against their will.

The plaintiff demanded valid record of transferred votes from NA-122 and asked the ECP to issue directives to the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) to cooperate in this regard.

Talking to media after filing the application, Aleem Khan claimed that this time ‘fraud’ happened in NA-122 by-election.

He predicted that Ayaz Sadiq will be de-seated again.
