The PTI candidate took the stance that he was winning with a lead of 3000 votes on the day of election. But the returning officer withheld the results for the next two days, he stated.

Rehman requested the court to order recounting of votes in the constituency. He made the election commission, returning officer and all other candidates parties in the case.
