KARACHI: An election tribunal in Karachi ordered re-election in PS-114 after the results were challenged by a defeated candidate, Express News reported on Friday.

Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) candidate Rauf Siddiqi had challenged the victory of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz's (PML-N) Irfanullah Marwat.

Siddiqi had accused Marwat of rigging the elections held on May 11, 2013.

The Election Commission of Pakistan will announce the date for re-election. The PML-N candidate can challenge the tribunal's decision in a higher court.

The National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) had informed the election tribunal that 17,504 votes cast in the PS-114 were bogus as they were either cast by someone else or had invalid national identity card numbers.

@ Kamran PTI's vote bank is more than 3 times that of MQM, just for your information. You can check ECP website if you require reference.
