ISLAMABAD (Dunya News)- Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Thursday has halted the issuance of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Saeed Ghani’s victory notification in PS-114 by-poll.
The decision was taken on a plea filed by Muttahida Quami Movement Pakistan (MQM-P) seeking to recount of votes casted during by-poll. ECP also issued notices to both plaintiffs.
The hearing was adjourned till July-17.
MQM-P Chief Farooq Sattar, while talking to media outside ECP, demanded biometric verification of all votes casted during by-poll.
“MQM-P’s candidate was securing victory till the very last moment. Startlingly, he lost in the end,” added Sattar.
