The election tribunal dismissed on Monday the petitions filed by National People's Party (NPP) candidates, challenging the results of NA-232 and NA-233 (Dadu) where two candidates of the Pakistan People's Party had been declared the winners.
Karim Ali Jatoi and Liaquat Ali Jatoi had filed the petitions alleging that they were not provided a ‘level playing field’ during electioneering and later Rafiq Ahmed Jamali and Imran Zafar Leghari of the PPP had rigged the elections.
They alleged that returning officers at several polling stations had helped both the candidates cast bogus votes. The counsel of the winning candidates, however, denied the allegations.
The tribunal headed by Justice (retd) Zafar Ahmed Khan Sherwani observed that the petitioners had failed to make their case, as it lacked tangible and legal evidences required under the Qanoon-e-Shahadat Order.
