LAHORE: Election Tribunal on Wednesday will announce the decision on NA-154 general elections. 2013. Tweeps are commenting on the possible outcome of the decision.
During General Election on May 11, 2013, Muhammad Siddique Khan Baloch (Independent – who later joined PML-N) had secured the seat of National Assembly from NA-154 constituency (Lodhran) by bagging 86, 177 against the second position holder Jahangir Khan Tareen – Secretary General of PTI- who collected 75,955 votes.
The result was challenged by Mr. Tareen through an election petition field under Section 52 of the Election Act on the ground that Mr. Baloch held fake secondary education, intermediate and undergraduate degrees and was involved in illegal means on the polling day as well. The lawyers of both parties completed their arguments and the election tribunal reserved its verdict for today (August 16, 2015).
On the application of Mr. Tareen, tribunal had directed the NADRA on May 21, 2016 to verify thumb impression. Just after three days of application of Mr. Tareen, Mr. Baloch got a stay order from Lahore High Court on May 16.
According to ECP, out of 370,150 registered votes, 235,938 were polled and 9,904 votes were rejected. The voting percentage in the constituency was 67.4%.

Unfortunate, despite being present there both Jehangir Tareen and Siddiq Baloch failed to control their wrangling workers#NA154

It seems our media has no other issues to discuss. I blame the media for being so disgusting and pathetic. #NA154

Waiting for another thrilling decision.
Though I hate Tareen but I love to see a neutral come out.
