The Election Commission of Pakistan on Saturday withheld the result of NA-88 Khushab after a violent mob burned the ballot papers on polling day, a spokesperson for the watchdog said.

“The ECP has ordered a re-poll on February 15 in the 26 polling stations of Khushab-2 after a violent mob burned the ballot papers. The result of the constituency will be announced after counting on Feb 15,” he added.

The electoral watchdog also withheld the results of PS-18 (Ghotki, Sindh) and PK-90 (Kohat, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa) after reports emerged that the polling material was destroyed or snatched from the ECP officials in several polling stations.

It is pertinent to mention that the Lahore High Court has also barred the ECP from announcing the result of Lahore’s NA-128 after PTI-backed candidate Salman Akram Raja challenged the results.

The court issued notices to the ECP and all relevant parties while ordering the electoral watchdog to withhold the final result.
