Imran’s PTI challenges election results in the Supreme Court

The former Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan’s party, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), has filed a petition challenging the results of the national parliamentary elections in the Supreme Court of the country.

According to a report by the news media Express Tribune on Friday (February 23), PTI leader and lawyer Sher Afzal Marwat said that representatives of the party have gone to the Supreme Court against the allegations of electoral fraud in the general elections held on February 8.

The senior leader of PTI further stated that a petition has been filed in the Supreme Court against the allegations of electoral fraud. Not only that; the appointments of Chief Election Commissioner Sikandar Sultan Raja and other members of the Election Commission have also been challenged.

In the elections held on February 8, PTI claimed to have won 180 seats, but the party alleges that their winning seats have only been announced in 92 constituencies. This means that PTI cannot form a government independently. As a result, the opportunity to return to power for PTI has been jeopardized.

Earlier, on February 16, a retired Pakistani army officer named Ali Khan had filed a petition in the Supreme Court challenging the election results.

A bench of three members led by Chief Justice Kazi Faez Isa along with justices Muhammad Ali Mazhar and Musarrat Hilali accepted the application.

On Wednesday, the court had also fixed the hearing date for that application.

However, since the applicant did not appear in court that day, the petition was dismissed, and Ali Khan was fined Rs 500,000 by the Supreme Court.

Incidentally, the total number of seats in the National Assembly of Pakistan is 266, out of which elections have been held for 265 seats. In order to form a government, a party must win at least 134 seats.
