NA-243, Karachi: PTI chief Imran Khan is leading with 12,181 votes. MQM’s Ali Raza Abidi is second with 3,245 votes as of 2:30 a.m.

NA-243 is one of the most sought-after seats in Karachi as the PTI is pitting its chief against Abidi who is more active on Twitter than most Karachi-based leaders.

There are other contestants in the race. The PPP fielded its heavy-weight, Shehla Raza, who served as the deputy speaker of the Sindh Assembly from 2013 to 2018.

Another significant player is the Milli Muslim League-backed Muzammil Iqbal Hashmi, who is standing on the ticket of Allah-o-Akbar Tehreek.

Imran Khan, PTI chairperson.

Shehla Raza of the PPP, former Sindh Assembly deputy speaker.
