ECP withholds notification of Shaukat Yousafzai's victory
The order came on Tuesday after the Chief Election Commissioner, Justice (retd) Sardar Mahmood Raza headed a five-member commission and discussed the low female voter turn-out in PK-23, Shangla constituency from where Yousafzai had won during the July 25 polls.
During the meeting, neither the petitioner nor the winning candidate appeared before the commission owing to which the five members decided to withhold the notification in another blow to the party that had lost a provincial seat owing to vote recount in PK-70.
Seeking a reply from Yousafzai in the case, the commission adjourned the hearing till August 13.
