KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) on Wednesday challenged PPP candidate Saeed Ghani’s victory in recently-held by-election on PS-114 constituency.
A petition was filed in Election Commission of Pakistan alleging rigging and manipulation of result by the PPP candidate.
MQM, which was runner up in the election, pleaded the Commission to order verification of votes polled in the constituency through Nadra. It also pleaded the commission to order recounting of votes.
The party alleged that the results were changed in the eleventh hours.
It also urged the ECP not to issue notification of Saeed Ghani as returned candidate before the recounting and verification of votes.
MQM has sought re-election in the constituency.
