ET rejects PTI leader’s petition against rigging in NA-122

ISLAMABAD: Election Tribunal on Tuesday dismissed a petition of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) candidate Abdul Aleem Khan against NA-122 by-election results.

Aleem Khan had filed an application for declaring results null and void.

PTI’s Khan had alleged that 30,000 votes were shifted from his constituency while Nadra had the record of only 7,000 votes. He said that the election was rigged and that the mandate of the public was stolen.

Aleem had pleaded the tribunal to set aside the election and announce re-election in the constituency.

National Assembly speaker Ayaz Sadiq was re-elected from the NA-122 seat in the by-elections in October last year.

Later, addressing a media briefing, he announced to move to Supreme Court against the ET decision on PTI plea.

He said his party will knock every door for justice in the election. He asked the government, “if you’ve won with a heavy mandate then why worry?”
