Inspection of vote bags ordered in PP-147

LAHORE: An election tribunal on Monday ordered inspection of record/vote bags in 111 polling stations of PP-147, Lahore. The tribunal directed retired additional sessions judge Ghulam Awan to check the record/bags of 111 polling stations of the constituency and submit a report by August 26. The tribunal comprising Kazim Ali Malik passed the orders on a petition filed by PTI candidate Shoaib Siddiqui challenging election of PML-N MPA Mian Mohsin Latif. The tribunal passed the orders after the commission was apprised that there was a difference of 1,000 votes in the result of seven polling stations wherein inspection was ordered earlier. Through his election petition PTI candidate Shoaib Siddiqui pleaded the tribunal to declare election of respondent MPA null and void.
