LAHORE (92 News) – Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday approved to challenge the verdict of the Daska election.

An appeal will be filed against the verdict on Monday.

On Thursday, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) had ordered to hold re-polling at all polling stations in Daska NA-75.

During the hearing, the Election Commission remarked that the election was not fair and transparent during the by-election in NA-75. The ECP declared by-polls held in NA-75 as declared and ordered to hold polling again on March 18.

After hearing the arguments, the ECP reserved its verdict on NA-75 Daska by-elections case.

PML-N counsel Salman Akram Raja has asked the commission to allow him to submit additional documents and proofs but the bench rejected his appeal and remarked, “You have already completed your arguments in previous hearing.”

Meanwhile, PTI counsel Barrister Ali Zafar has said that the election commission can hold investigation over halting voting process in the constituency but, the inquiry trial is the mandate of Election Tribunal.

PML-N candidate Nosheen Iftikhar had demanded to remove all those government officials who were ‘involved’ in electoral fraud during the by poll of NA-75 Daska.
