Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Monday challenged the victories of Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) leaders Farooq Sattar and Syed Mustafa Kamal on the National Assembly seats NA-244 and NA-242, respectively, in the Sindh High Court.
PTI-affiliated independent candidates Dawa Khan Sabir and Aftab Jahangir filed a petition against the "irregularities" in election results.
Dawa Khan, in his petition, claimed success in the constituency with 53,000 votes as per Form 45.
Separately, Aftab Jahangir also challenged Farooq Sattar's victory, claiming that the results were tempered to favour the MQM-P leader.
Jahangir said that Sattar had secured only 7,980 votes, alleging that the results were changed in Form 47.
"Form 47 should be declared null and void," the petitioners requested.
On the other hand, Jamat-e-Islami (JI) also challenged the results of at least four constituencies of the Sindh Assembly.
JI’s Junaid Mukati, Muhammad Ahmed, Muhammad Akbar, and Nusrat Allah filed petitions against the announced results of PS-104, PS-124, PS-123, and PS-126, respectively, which were bagged by MQM-P.
JI's counsel Advocate Usman Farooq claimed that all MQM-P candidates were on the fourth and fifth number, which were declared winner in form-47.
