LAHORE: The inspection of a local commission, Ghulam Hussain Awan, recoreded his statement on Saturday before election tribunal judge Justice Kazim Ali Malik regarding irregularities in NA-122 polling stations and also submitted a report in this regard.
National Assembly Speaker Ayaz Sadiq had defeated PTI Chairman Imran Khan in the 2013 general elections from NA-122.
Awan, told the tribunal judge that due to the negligence of polling staff, ballot bags with broken seals have been included in the report along with invalid votes and different coloured ballot papers.
The tribunal judge has also summoned 150 witnesses on January 31, the list of whom Sadiq’s lawyer submitted to the tribunal today, stating that ‘Imran khan is untruthful’. The witnesses will provide evidence on the fact that rigging did not take place in the NA-122.
Earlier, the commission which was tasked to inspect the record of the NA-122 constituency, where National Assembly speaker Ayaz Sadiq had been declared winner, submitted its report the election tribunal last week.
