Farooq Sattar smells ‘irregularities’ in PS-127 by-polls
Talking to media, Sattar claimed that his party has not received results from 52 out of 134 polling stations within the constituency raising their fears that some irregularity occured in the said polling stations.
“The returning officer is hiding himself from our candidate, overlooking the fact that it is his responsibility to keep in touch with all the candidates,” said Sattar.
He maintained that his party will only be able to decide about accepting results or seeking legal help after getting complete results.
According to unofficial results, PPP candidate Ghulam Murtaza Baloch is set to win the by-polls on the provincial assembly seat vacated by former MQM leader Ashfaq Mangi.
Mangi resigned from MQM on April 18 and joined rival Mustafa Kamal’s Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP).
