KARACHI Sindh High Court (SHC) on Tuesday has stopped victory notification of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Faisal Vawda in NA-249 over the plea of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president Shehbaz Sharif.
During the hearing, the court has summoned reply from Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) secretary and others till August 10.
Meanwhile, success notification of PTI‘s Jameel Ahmed Khan in NA-237 has also been halted.
Earlier today, Shehbaz Sharif approached SHC and demanded to hold vote recount in NA-249 Karachi. He adopted the stance that the environment was made favorable for PTI leader Faisal Vawda during election campaign. The law enforcement agencies removed my posters and banners from the constituency, he alleged.
Sharif said that their polling agents were forcefully sent out of the voting hall during counting. However, they were handed over the results on a rough paper, he stated.
