12000 votes polled with unverified CNIC numbers in NA-118


LAHORE: It seems the dust has settled of Electoral rigging in 2013 elections after Judicial Commission’s report, but it doesn’t in actual because NADRA could not verify CNIC numbers of  more than 12,000 votes polled in NA-118.

According to the details, deputy chairman NADRA has recorded his statement in reference to the forensic report of vote polled in this constituency of Lahore.

As per NADRA officials, it could not verify above 12,000 ID Card Numbers of votes where as 3270 votes were polled on bogus CNIC numbers.

The court has summoned counsel of both parties on 15th August for final proceedings.

In NA-118, Hamid Zaman of PTI had challenged the victory of PMLN’s Malik Riaz right after the GE 2013 and still the tribunal has not given its verdict in this case.
