Former Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) MPA Nasir Cheema had challenged the success of Pakistan Muslim League –Nawaz (PML-N) member Muhammad Ashraf Warraich in PP-97, alleging that the polling results were rigged during May 11, 2013 general elections.
Cheema had asked the tribunal to check the results and re-count the votes.

@ Adnan Can you kindly name those legislators of PTI with reference. The only case I know is NA-19 Haripur, Raja Amir Zaman, where after 2 instances of recounts, the supreme court ordered re-polling in 7 polling stations. And what is this 'dimwitted trolls sheep herd personality cult bla bla bla' that you use in almost every post. We understand that you are frustrated, but for heaven's sake, stop ridiculing opponents to vent that frustration.
It looks like that IK stance is genuine.The May 11 election was completely rigged in Punjab.
If you think the tribunals are doing their job, why protest?
Had you not chose to close your eyes even in broad daylight, you would have know that the same ECP has disqualified sitting PTI legislators for, you guessed it right......rigging!
The dimwitted trolls of the sheep herd have still not understood the fact that it is the due process of law which at the end of the day will adjudicate on the guilt and innocence of someone. I have no sympathy with this particular PML-N legislator if he entered parliament on the basis of rigging. He has however every right to go back to his constituents and solicit votes in the by-elections.
That's why we support PTI to eradicate such corrupt system that after 1.5 years still in our country elections are going on, ECP and PMLN are jokers and they stole mandate of Pakistani citizens
lets see what PMLN supporters or PTI criticizers will justify this.
