The Election Tribunal rejected the petition of the PML-N President Shahbaz Sharif against the success of Federal Minister Faisal Vawda from NA 249 Karachi. President Muslim League-N Shahbaz Sharif challenged the success of PTI leader Faisal Vawda.
Remember that Shahbaz Sharif was defeated by PTI Faisal Vawda in NA 249 Karachi in the general elections 2018. Shahbaz Sharif decided to go to Election Tribunal for re-election. The PML-N lost by a margin of over 600 votes, while in that constituency, 3500 votes were canceled.
According to the result obtained by the Election Commission, Faisal Vawda of PTI got 35344 votes while the former Chief Minister Punjab could get 34626 votes. In the Sindh High Court Election Tribunal, Shahbaz Sharif had taken a stand in the petition that Faisal Vawda won by fraud and hence his success could be nullified but now the petition has been rejected.
It is to be noted that Faisal Vawda is included in the Federal Cabinet and is the Federal Minister for Water Resources.
