LAHORE -- An Election Tribunal on Saturday reserved verdict on the application seeking directions to make supplementary report submitted by National Database and Registration Authority as record of the case in NA-122.
The tribunal judge Kazim Ali Malik reserved the verdict which will be announced on June 15. Earlier, NADRA officials submitted a supplementary report before the tribunal and stated that 99.93 percent votes cast in NA-122 were correct while 229 votes could not be verified. The officials stated that they made all facts clear and the questions raised by the lawyers of both parties on the repot had also been addressed. NADRA prepared the report with the consultations of both parties lawyers. Ali Ayaz Sadiq, after the supplementary report of NADRA, said that Imran Khan should stop speaking lie and should not raise illogical allegations. The counsel of Imran Khan, however, refused to accept the supplementary report saying that NADRA Chairman misused his powers. He also pleaded the judge to initiate proceedings against NADRA chairman.
Tribunal judge, however, did not order NADRA to prepare a supplementary report on it and NADRA itself prepared it.
Imran Khan had filed the main petition against Sardar Ayaz Sadiq alleging that massive rigging was made in the constituency and the mandate of the general public was stolen. He pleaded to set aside the election and announce re-election in the constituency.
