ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf has on Wednesday challenged Election Tribunal’s decision pertaining to the results of the NA-122 by-poll in the Supreme Court.

As per details, the petition has been filed against Election Commission and Speaker National Assembly Sardar Ayaz Sadiq challenging the Election Tribunal’s verdict.

Earlier, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) had rejected Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Aleem Khan’s plea challenging the results of the NA-122 by-poll, but allowed the party access to voter data in the constituency.

An 800-page petition filed by Aleem last November alleged irregularities and pre-poll rigging in the NA-122 by-poll, and requested the ECP to declare the election null and void on the basis of “technical rigging”. Aleem Khan contested the NA-122 by-polls against National Assembly (NA) Speaker and PML-N leader Sardar Ayaz Sadiq in October. Sadiq reclaimed the “NA-122”, from which he had been de-seated by an election tribunal in August 2015.
