PB-41 constituency: runner up approaches to apex court for votes recounting

ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court Wednesday served notices to the respondents in a petition seeking recounting of votes in PB-41 constituency, Balochistan. Justice Azmat Sheikh said the petitioner had to prove his stance in votes recounting to get relief.

A two member bench headed by Justice Azmat Saeed Sheikh conducted the hearing on a petition filed by a candidate of Balochistan Awami Party Muneeb ur Rehman. The petitioner pleaded that there was only a difference of 350 votes with the winning candidate.

The Election Commission of Pakistan had conducted recounting only at two polling stations, he added. The bench served the notices to the respondents and adjourned hearing of the case.
