ISLAMABAD – Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan, following a defeat in NA-154 by-elections, said, “every setback is an opportunity to analyse mistakes.”

In a major upset for PTI before the general elections, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) won the by-polls for the constituency of NA-154 Lodhran, according to unofficial results from all 338 polling stations.

Imran tweeted that successful people, institutions and nations always learn from their failures.

According to unofficial results from 338 polling stations, PML-N’s Iqbal Shah bagged over 116,000 votes.

PTI candidate Ali Tareen followed behind with more than 91,000 votes.

The NA-154 seat fell vacant after Jahangir Tareen’s disqualification for being “dishonest”.
