Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Wins by Election:
As a result of candidate Fazl Mula’s victory on Sunday in the election for PK-7 Swat against the candidate put forward by the ANP led by Asfandyar Wali, the PTI was able to take a seat that had previously been won by the ANP in the national elections that were held in 2018. Fazl Mula defeated the candidate put forward by the ANP led by Asfandyar Wali.
The early tallies were obtained from 124 polling stations, and they showed that Mula earned 17,395 votes, while the ANP candidate Hussain Ahmed placed in second place with 14,604 votes.
During the by-election, Ahmed gained support from a wide variety of political parties, some of which include the PPP, PML-N, QWP, and JUI-F.
Since ANP’s member of the provincial assembly (MPA) Waqar Ahmad Khan passed away on April 30, this year, the PK-7 Swat seat has been left unfilled. In accordance with the regulations outlined in the Constitution of Pakistan, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has been given the responsibility of organizing a by-election to fill any vacant seat held by a legislator within sixty days of the seat being vacant.
The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) issued a statement a day earlier in which it stated that it anticipated a difficult race between the four candidates and that it anticipated that the candidates for the PTI and the ANP would be running neck and neck. This statement was issued in anticipation of the fact that the ECP anticipated that the candidates for the PTI and the ANP would be running neck and neck.
The electorate in the constituency is comprised of 100,288 males and 81,220 women, making the total number of registered voters in the constituency 183,308.
The ECP has set up a total of 124 polling stations inside the constituency, with a total of 308 voting booths in those polling stations combined.
The ANP is opposed to the result.
The ANP challenged the victory of the PTI almost as soon as the unofficial results were made public, and it said that it would challenge the verdict after first meeting with its members.
The results that were shown on the Form 45 that was handed to the polling agents were not the same as the ones that were published in the official results, according to Aimal Wali Khan, a leader for the ANP.
Khan questioned the ECP’s quiet on the use of government machinery and the overnight release of funds, and he questioned the reasons behind the ECP’s silence. Khan questioned why the ECP was silent.
