A candidate belonging to the Majlis-e-Wahdat-ul-Muslimeen was declared the victor in Kurram’s NA-37 on Friday.

Hamid Khan was declared the winner after getting 58,650 votes as per the Form-47 issued by the Election Commission. Sajid Hussain Turi of Pakistan Peoples Party stood second with 54,384 votes.

The MWM victory could be significant as it was one of the parties mentioned in connection with a ‘Plan-C’ by the PTI.

Reports had claimed in January that PTI-backed independent candidates could end up joining another party in the National Assembly which would allow them to be organised and receive reserved seats.
