PML-F wins Gambat Ward No2 election

By our correspondent

SUKKUR: PML-F’s Maulvi Naimatullah Shaikh won the election of Gambat Ward No 2 of the local bodies held on Thursday. He secured 547 votes against his closest rival, a PPP candidate, who could get only 290 votes. TMA Gambat has 13 wards, and the PML-F and the PPP had an equal number of seats until Thursday’s elections. Now by virtue of the  results of Ward No 2, the PML-F is most certain to secure the post of the Taluka chairman. Syed Ismail Shah Rashdi, a PML-F leader, said that his party’s winning the election of Gambat Ward No 2 clearly proved that the PPP was not a popular party in Sindh anymore.
