MULTAN: Pakistan Peoples Party’s (PPP) Abdul Qadir Gilani won the NA-151 Multan by-elections with 64,628 votes on Thursday, reported Express News. Independent candidate Shaukat Hayat Bosan lost the elections with 60,532 votes, according to unofficial results.

At least 245 polling stations were set-up for the by-polls.

Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf, and Minister Information Qamar Zaman Kaira congratulated Abdul Qadir Gilani on the victory. Ashraf said conducting free and fair by-elections in NA-151 were a good omen for democracy in Pakistan.

President Zardari also felicitated former Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani on his son’s electoral victory.

The NA-151 seat had fallen vacant after former prime minister Yousaf Raza Gilani was disqualified from his post by the Supreme Court in a contempt of court case earlier this year. Gilani’s son Abdul Qadir Gilani was selected by the ruling PPP to contest on the seat.

Malik Ishaq Bucha was also supposed to be running for the seat from Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N), but he left his party to join the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) earlier this month. The PML-N then announced its support for Bosan, who is the brother of Sikandar Bosan of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI).

Sikandar Bosan had also taken back his nomination papers after his party decided to boycott the by-elections.

Secondly I would like to ask these who thinks PTI is scared…..Do you know PML-Q never lost a by-elections when they ruled under Mushy. What happened to them in general elections?

It remains a fact since 1970, anti PPP forces join hands together and still can not defeat PPP in fair elections. on top of it judiciary’s bias against PPP can make PPP single largest party with enough seats to form government alone.

Our so called intellectuals and media started saying tthe same thing that its people verdict and blah blah blah… (1) almost half of the voters (who voted) reject PPP (while supporting PML N)…(2) and most importantly, what about the remaining 140,000 voters who boycotted the election on call from PTI?….so my friend don’t go for superficial analysis…..go deep…(2) so with how many voted PPP (with the use of all its govt machinary) won today? was the gap huge? (1) Did IK or any PTI leader campainged for Sikandar Bosan? (3) did CJ asked for voting Sikandar Bosan?….you so called liberal does not have the heart to realize truth…start lebeling people as how your hearts want and concluding with your norrow wisdom and bias….

I give them benefit of the doubt just because they are illiterate but god forsake when they will open their eyes to oust these mob of hypocrites and blood-suckers. This has been proven that we Pakistanis don’t want to bring change. Why we always have to bear the brunt and when this tortuous web of fake loyalties will going to be shattered. Proponents of a democratic Pakistan just come to rule this country for their own interest and don’t have even a modicum of soft heart for these poor people of Pakistan. This is the responsibility of the media to educate the deprived class of Pakistan generally and specifically we youngster have to lend a helping hand to achieve this benign task. Otherwise I can extrapolate what is going to happen in the next general election. Sindh will be swept by PPP. In Punjab N-league will get majority of seats, but IK will do his part as a spoiler. A coalition government is on the cards after the next general election.

    @Blithe both PPP and coalition candidate had the same slogan of creation of province, PPP sold it well, one can criticize its governance but as for as state’s constitutional requirements as per people aspirations are concerned, PPP’s record is best, rather they creators and defenders of constitution. Small administrative units are necessary so that backward areas can also develop, generate their sources of income and have right to spend that income at will for development. As far as PPP governance is concerned, judiciary and other powerful institutions made it difficult to judge whether they are bad at governance or continuous interference by said institutions in state affairs was cause of non-deliverance besides terrorism, afghan war and most importantly loss of their leader in act of terrorism. To be fair they were not allowed a level playing field and if you think they should get filtered in electoral process, that does not seem to happen this time due to mentioned reasons. Result of NA 151 should be taken seriously by the non-democratic forces. It shows the maturity of the voters, which means they do not like undemocratic decisions, despite hardships during last four years they still went with democracy which is ray of hope.

    The outcome of this election shows that Imran cannot win any seat anywhere in the country. Multan is the home town of PTI’s three strongest leaders (JH, SMQ abd Bosan) and still they could not win this seat.. Test tube baby has died in womb.

    Qadir Gillani won but mismanagement on large scale has been seen in voting lists because these elections were held on 2007’s electoral lists but the messages from ECP received on mobiles and the given receipts about polling booths/stations were according to the fresh voting lists and the voters were sent from one polling station to another polling station repeatedly in the hot weather thus lots of votes were missed out or couldn’t cast……….

    Hi @Zeeshan: Tell me who is not corrupt in this country? If corruption is the benchmark for you and your like minded then you will be left alone in finding the answer to the question “Whom I should Love? Whom I should vote? My advice is find something else such as who has the courage to stand for the people against any usurper. Am I right?

    An impoverished country of 180 million people. Where poor illiterate masses have no say no thinking no weight, their only concern is FOOD and a JOB. Where ven well off people sell off for only a single job. Will they bring change by voting??? Who will defeat this OLIGARCHY in elections, an oligarchy which has tonnes of corruption and black money. Who’s cronies control the whole system and government machinery. Think about it. Those who think PTI will win live in a fools paradise.

    why u guys cannot accept the reality. this is democracy. people chose what they like. you can’t teach them from your drawing room to like this that and hate this that. They are wiser than you are and better know what to do and what not to do.

    U just poll your own vote and keep silent. feel the revenge of democracy.

    Sounds like defaeat for PPP to me. Their margin of win is reduced considerably.This is despite central Govt acting as local, provincial and federal Govt at the same time in Multan, and despite spending Billion of Rupees and using Govt. machinery without shame. Not all opposition vpoters voted for the other candidate. No leader of PTI or PMLN campaingned.PPP is doomed in Punjab.Only PTI can save it by dividing votes. I hope PTI surpass all obstacles and really wins not only act as spoiler.They should go after all parties and the whole country and not only focus on PMLN.
