Shehbaz Sharif's plea for recount of NA-249 votes rejected

KARACHI: The Returning Officer turned down the appeal of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif to recount the votes from his Karachi constituency of NA-249.
The PML-N leader scoring 34626 votes had lost his national assembly seat by a distinction of 600 votes to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s Faisal Vawda in the general elections held on July 25.
On the other hand, PTI leader Aleem Khan has also filed for a petition for a revision of votes in his Lahore constituency of NA-129 which has received approval by the Returning Officer (RO) who has demanded the presence of the seat’s winner with 103,021 votes Ayaz Sadiq of PML-N on Saturday at 10am.
Khan who had garnered 94,879 votes had complained that not only were the polling agents debarred from entering the polling stations, they were also not handed Form 45, the official statement of the vote count.
