ECP rejected allegations of vote fraud in NA-68
ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) today rejected allegations of vote fraud in National Assembly constituency NA-68, Sargodha, where Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was the winner.
PTI Chairman Imran Khan had repeatedly pointed out that more than 7, 000 votes were cast at a polling station against 1500 registered votes.
ECP’s Additional Secretary Sher Afgan said that 7, 000 ballot papers were not even available at the polling station. “It seems that 7100 was written due to a typing error,” he said.
Nawaz Sharif had a lead of 95, 244 votes from his closest rival candidate and if 7100 votes were omitted, it won’t change the results, Afgan said.
