LAHORE – An election tribunal on Wednesday ordered verification of votes in NA-122 constituency through National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA), media reports said.

The tribunal, while hearing the plea filed by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan, ordered NADRA to complete the thorough investigation of the electoral record of the constituency in 30 days.

 

While hearing Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan’s plea, the election tribunal on Wednesday ordered verification of votes in NA-122 constituency through the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA).

 

The PTI chairman in his petition had requested that record of NA-122 was not thoroughly verified and it was not cleared in the report either rigging took place in the election or not, thus, the record should be verified from the NADRA.

 

Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) leader and National Assembly Speaker Sardar Ayaz Sadiq’s lawyer argued that NA-122 vote bags were reopened and re-count was also carried out therefore there is no need to get votes verified by NADRA.

 

PML-N’s Sardar Ayaz Sadiq had won against the PTI chief during the general election held on May 11, 2013 in this constituency.
