Nawaz Sharif failed to cast his vote
15 October, 2018
Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Sunday failed to cast his vote during by-election in NA-124 as he forgot to bring along with him his national identity card.
The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo arrived at a polling station set up at Government Technology College in National Assembly constituency NA-124 Lahore, from where former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi was contesting the by-election.
The former premier, accompanied by Abbasi, checked his name in the voters’ list at the polling booth. The polling agent asked Nawaz to cast his ballot, at which his CNIC was also demanded.
Nawaz inquired his personal staff officer (PSO) regarding his CNIC. The PSO informed the former premier that the CNIC was with his personal secretary, who was not present there. Though, the PML-N could not cast his ballot, his nephews, who were also accompanying him, cast their votes after showing their CNICs.
