ISLAMABAD (92 News) - Minister for Information Fawad Chaudhary has said that PTI's spectacular victory in AJK polls is manifestation of common man's unwavering confidence in Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan.

In a tweet on Monday, the information minister said that the opposition parties should reconsider both their leadership and politics. He said the people are not ready to accept former president Asif Ali Zardari and former premier Nawaz Sharif.

He said it is time for alternative leadership and there is no future of those who met with Afghan National Security Adviser Hamdullah Mohib.

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has clinched most seats in the Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) Legislative Assembly and got simple majority to form the next government in AJK.

According to unofficial and unconfirmed results, the PTI won in 25 constituencies — nine of them in Pakistan — followed by the Pakistan Peoples' Party (PPP) in 10 constituencies (one of them in Pakistan) and PML-N in six constituencies (two of them in Pakistan).

Muslim Conference and Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Party have secured one seat each.

Among the winners was PTI’s regional chief Barrister Sultan Mahmood who secured his seventh success in the nine general elections held in LA-3, Mirpur-III since 1985. Apart from these nine general elections, two by-elections were also held in this constituency and both were won by him. The only elections he could not win were the general elections of 1991 and 2016.

Barrister Sultan Mahmood Chaudhry, Khawaja Ahmed Farooq, Sardar Tanvir Ilyas, Diwan Khan Chughtai, Chaudhry Arshad and Ch. Anwar-ul-Haq have won their seats.

PML-N candidates Raja Farooq Haider and Shah Ghulam Qadir have also retained their seats.

Ex-Prime Minister of AJK and chief of Muslim Conference Sardar Attique Ahmed Khan has been declared successful on LA-14 Bagh.

A total of 587 candidates contested the elections in 33 constituencies of Azad Kashmir districts and 121 candidates on 12 constituencies of Jammu and Kashmir refugees settled in Pakistan.

Talking to APP, AJK Secretary Election Commission Muhammad Ghazanfar Khan said the General Elections were held in a free, fair and transparent manner.

He expressed satisfaction over the law and order and appreciated the performance of the police and the Pakistan army for ensuring the peaceful conduct of the elections.
