LAHORE: Declaring election results fair, an election tribunal consisting of Kazim Ali Malik on Monday rejected rigging allegations leveled by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) in NA-124 constituency of Lahore.
According to media reports, Sheikh Rohail Asgher, of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), returned to the National Assembly from NA-124 by defeating PTI’s Waleed Iqbal and PPP’s Bushra Aitzaz. Both of the losing candidates filed petitions in the tribunal, challenging Asghar’s victory. The petitioners alleged that rigging took place and fake votes were cast during polling on May 11, 2013.
The tribunal dismissed the petitions against rigging and declared elections fair.
