LAHORE, May 05 (INP): An election tribunal on Monday ordered for re-election in Lahore’s NA-125 and PP-155 constituency after rigging on the seats was proven during the 2013 General Elections. The one-page verdict said that the ballot bags had been opened with a sharp object and the records had been tampered with. It added that upon Nadra’s verification of votes in the ballot bags which were opened for scrutiny it was found that on an average each person had cast six votes each. Hamid Khan had challenged the victory of PML-N’s Saad Rafiq alleging that he rigged the elections and a large number of bogus votes were cast in his favour. He had requested the tribunal to declare the election null and void and announce re-election in the constituency.
