LAHORE- Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf Chairman Imran Khan on Tuesday challenged the results of national assembly seat NA-122, and urged the election tribunal for recounting of votes.

Imran Khan had lost his seat against the present speaker of National Assembly Sardar Ayaz Sadiq. Through his appeal, Khan said massive rigging deprived him of his success. He requested the tribunal to recount votes through Nadra.

The hearing of the appeal would be in the first week of September. Meanwhile, in another appeal filed by Hamid Khan, the PTI defeated candidate, the Election Tribunal had summoned all the candidates of the concerned constituency NA-125, on next date of hearing fixed as August 28.

PML-N Khwaja Saad Rafiq was declared returned candidate from the national assembly constituency NA-125.

Hamid Khan said the local government was used by the PML-N in on the polling day.

He said polling agents of PTI were expelled from around 200 polling stations and bogus votes were cast in favour of Rafiq.

The appellant also urged the tribunal for recounting of the votes through Nadra so that the alleged poll rigging could be exposed.
