Election Commission orders re-polling in Sialkot’s NA-75
The Election Commission of Pakistan has ordered re-polling in Sialkot’s NA-75 after the results of the February 19 by-elections were challenged by the members of the opposition.
The PML-N accused the PTI of attempting to rig the elections after some presiding members had gone missing during the vote count on the nights that votes were cast.
The officers came to the ECP February 20 morning with the results and claimed that they left early because the fog was too dense.
The electoral body heard the case over the objections raised by the opposition members and ruled that the by-elections were neither fair nor just.
The re-polling will be held on March 18. At least 360 polling stations will be set up in the constituency.
