Election tribunal rejects PTI’s rigging claim in NA-118
Hamid Zaman of the PTI had filed a petition with the election tribunal, seeking to declare in NA-118 as null and void.
Zaman had sought the verification of voters’ thumb impressions to establish rigging allegedly committed by the PML-N candidate, Malik Riaz.
The tribunal had earlier reserved its verdict which was announced today.
In March, tribunal member Kazim Ali Malik directed the Nadra to complete the verification process within a month and submit a report to this effect.
