Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf nominee Barrister Sultan Mahmood won on Sunday the by-election in Azad Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly constituency LA-3 Mirpur, according to unofficial results.
Barrister Mahmood bagged 17,673 votes, unofficial results from all the 119 polling stations suggested.
He was followed by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s Sohaib Saeed. The PML-N candidate secured 14,813 votes.
The by-election in LA-3 was ordered after a court de-seated PML-N’s Chaudhry Saeed.
PTI workers gathered outside the party secretariat in the city Sunday evening. They chanted slogans and distributed sweets to celebrate their candidate’s win.
