LAHORE - An election tribunal on Saturday reissued a notice to the National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra) chairman to appear in person for cross examination in the alleged matter of rigging in NA-122 constituency.

As the hearing started, the authority also submitted a supplementary forensic report of the constituency NA-122. It stated that 5898 (96.7 percent) voters out of 6123 could be declared or considered as valid voters which were earlier declared invalid voters by Nadra on the pretext that CNICs of those voters were never issued by the authority.

However, officials told the tribunal judge that the Nadra chairman was out of country and it was the reason he could not appear before the tribunal.

Tribunal Judge Kazim Ali Malik adjourned the hearing until June 13 and reissued notice to National Database and Registration Authority  chairman to appear in the tribunal.

Earlier, Nadra submitted forensic report on NA-122 and PP-147 and revealed many discrepancies and irregularities in the election record of the both constituencies.

PTI Chairman Imran Khan had challenged the victory of National Assembly Speaker Sardar Ayaz Sadiq of PML-N and alleged that he had rigged the general election and stole the mandate of the general public. He requested the tribunal to declare Sadiq disqualified and announce re-election in the constituency.
