ECP reserves judgment in PS-114 vote recount case

SAEED GHANI AFTER WINNING SOT 09-07
ISLAMABAD: Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) Wednesday reserved judgement in vote recount case against Pakistan Peoples Party’s winning candidate Senator Saeed Ghani in PS-114 Karachi.

Arguing before the court, the counsel of Senator Saeed Ghani Saeed, Senator Chaudhry Aitzaz Ahsan rejected the charges of rigging against PPP candidate and urged ECP to notify Saeed Ghani as winning Member Provincial Assembly (MPA) Sindh.

The ECP had halted the notification of PPP candidate Saeed Ghani’s victory in the PS-114 elections last day. The ECP was hearing a petition by Mutahidda Qaumi Movement – Pakistan (MQM-P) candidate Kamran Tessori for a vote recount.

MQM-P had pleaded the ECP to order the returning officer to conduct a recount of votes for the recently-held elections in PS-114 in Karachi.

PPP’s Saeed Ghani had secured 23,840 votes against MQM-P candidate Kamran Tessori’s 18,106 votes, according to unofficial and unconfirmed results.

MQM-P had claimed that the PPP had used unfair means to win the elections.

Later, talking to media, chief of Mutahidda Quomi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) Farooq Sattar said the ruling PPP had used state resources for winning by elections of Karachi.

MQM-P candidate was not provided form 14 and 15 of 21 polling stations, he added.  – SAMAA
