August 3, 2018

During a recount in Swat’s PK-4, four bags of ballot papers went missing. The recount has been halted and people are unsure of what to do.

PTI’s Azizullah Khan beat the PML-N’s Amir Muqam by 182 votes during the general elections. Muqam then asked for a recount in the constituency.

During the recount, when ballot papers from 101 polling stations had already been counted, it emerged that four polling stations’ ballot papers had been misplaced.

There are 105 polling stations in the constituency.

The recount has been halted for the past four days and no winner has been announced. The candidates and other party workers are all very agitated by the news and want to know what happened to the bags.
