His earlier request for a recount in the constituency was turned down
PTI leader Usman Dar has challenged PML-N leader Khawaja Asif’s victory in the election tribunal. Dar lost the election to Asif on NA-73 Sialkot.
Dar’s petition said that Asif’s affidavit submitted to the election commission was not verified. He didn’t declare all his assets in his nomination papers while contesting the 2018 general elections from NA-73. Dar stated that the ECP failed to implement Election Act 2017.
The Supreme Court rejected Dar’s petition for a recount in August.
Asif secured 117,002 votes in the election, while Dar got 115,596 votes.
