NA154: PTI Completes Hat-Trick as Tribunal Orders Re-Poll


MULTAN: Election Tribunal probing the alleged rigging case in NA-154 has declared the elections held in this constituency in 2013 null and void and ordered re-poll.

Tribunal Judge  Justice Rana Zahid Mehmood has de-seated PMLN MNA Siddique Baloch and he is also been declared ineligible for life time in Fake Degree fraud.

According to the verdict, massive irregularities were found that cannot be overlooked and lead to the decision of re-elections.

Siddique Baloch had emerged victorious in 2013 as Independent candidate against PTI’s Jahagir Khan Tareen.

The runner-up candidate has challenged the victory of his opponent in the Election tribunal and this verdict came after more than two years and around 130 hearings.
