LAHORE: Mian Marghoob Ahmad of Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) won the seat in PP-150 Lahore XIV according to unofficial results of the recount, Express News reported on Wednesday.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-insaaf (PTI) has rejected the results of the recount in this constituency yet again, despite the fact that Returning Officer, Javed Iqbal Warraich supervised the recount in the presence of the two candidates.

Ahmad secured 18,526 votes while PTI candidate Mehar Wajid Azeem came in second with 18,074 votes.

After a neck-and-neck contest in the August 22 by-elections, PML-N’s Ahmad was declared the winner with a close margin of 374 votes from the runners up, PTI’s Azeem.

Azeem challenged the result in the courts, alleging irregularities at some polling stations.

The Election Commission later ordered a recount on August 29.

@Azad:

Your penultimate post smacks of jealousy of our Khadim-e-Alla. You keep up with such ludicrous comments that personify the myopic mindset of a quintessential troll who is seething with jealousy.
