PML-N, PML-Q retain their PA seats in by-polls

08 May, 2012

DERA GHAZI KHAN: Nothing unexpected happened in the by-elections for two Punjab Assembly seats PP 243 and PP 245, Dera Ghazi Khan as all major political parties the PML-N, the PML-Q and the PPP saved their prestige by getting their candidates returned to the provincial legislature.

The two seats of the Punjab Assembly fell vacant due to the resignation of PML-Q legislator Muhammad Mohsin Khan Leghari and senior adviser to the Punjab chief minister, Sardar Zulfiqar Ali Khan Khosa. The two had been elected to the Senate.

According to unofficial results, PML-N candidate Hasamuddin Khosa continued the legacy of his father Sardar Zulfiqar Khosa by winning PP 243 seat by securing 25,518 votes while his closest rival Leghari-backed independent candidate Imtiaz Leghari secured 19,205 votes.

In PP 245, PML-Q candidate Muhammad Khan Leghari received 24,584 votes while his opponent and PML-N candidate Mirza Talpur secured 11,748 votes. Muhammad Khan Leghari also enjoyed the support of the PPP. The Election Commission has withheld the result of PP 243 due to rigging complaints.

End.
