    Recounting in diiferent constituencies was held, Gilani,Javed Ali Shah pleas rejected

    The recounting of votes in different constituencies across the country is to begin shortly today. in Multan, recounting in NA- 157 was held in Returning office on the petition of Syed Ali Musa Gilani who bagged 70,839 votes while his rival Syed Zain Qureshi son of Makhdoom Shah Mehmood Qureshi got 77,731 votes. Similarly Syed Abdul Qadar Gilani a PPP candidarte from NA-154 also submitted a petition against Malik Ahmed Hassan Dehar of PTI .However District returning officer rejected the petition for recounting of Sheikh Tariq Rasheed of PML-N from NA 155 because there was a vast margin of more 70,000 votes between him and the winner Malik Aamer Dogar of PTI. Similarly two petitions of PPP's Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani and Syed Javed Ali Shah of PML-N. A petition of Mian Kamran Maral of PPP from PP-220 was also rejected because margin of votes was high than 10,000 votes.
    In Lahore, Returning Officer of NA-129 has summoned the winning candidate, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz's (PML-N) Ayaz Sadiq for a recount of votes for the constituency.
    Sadiq received 103,021 votes from NA-129 Lahore-7 constituency to win a seat in the National Assembly. Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) Abdul Aleem Khan was the runner-up, trailing behind Sadiq with 94,879 votes.
    Moreover, Pakistan's main political parties rejected the outcome of elections won by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI). The All Parties Conference (APC) announced protests demanding new polls after foreign observers criticized the pivotal vote over rigging allegations.
    Furthermore, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) also accepted Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz's (PML-N) leader and former minister for Railways Khawaja Saad Rafique's petition for a recount.
    In Faisalabad's NA-108 and NA-106 constituencies, the recount will begin shortly. Similarly, re-tabulation is also set to take place for Multan's NA-154 and NA-157 constituencies. 
    The announcement by APC, including the outgoing PML-N, is a fresh obstacle to power for Khan after delayed results finally showed he had won an emphatic victory — though he will need to seek a coalition to form a government.
    The nationwide polls held Wednesday have been criticised by the United States, the European Union (EU), and other observers after widespread claims that the playing field was fixed in Khan's favour.
