Victory notification of PML-N’s MPA Rana Arshad nullified by LHC

LAHORE: Victory notification of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s (PML-N) Rana Arshad from PP-133, Nankana Sahib was nullified by the Lahore High Court (LHC) on Wednesday.

According to details, the orders were passed by Justice Shahid Karim of the LHC on a petition filed by rival independent candidate Muhammad Atif challenging the notification of Rana Arshad’s victory.

Petitioner was of the opinion that he was succeeded after getting over 35,000 votes as per Form 45. However, the Election Commission ordered a recount contrary to the law. In the recount, Rana Arshad was declared successful with over 25,000 votes, said the petitioner.

The notification of the petitioner’s success had already been issued. However, the Election Commission unlawfully issued a notification of Rana Arshad’s success.

The court, in response to the petition, declared the notification of Rana Arshad’s victory null and void and ordered the issuance of the petitioner’s notification as an MPA.
