LAHORE (DNA) – The polling for the NA-120 by-election came to an end at its designated time amid stringent security measures and scattered incidents of confrontation between workers of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).
According to the unofficial and unconfirmed results of more than 170 polling stations, PML-N candidate Kulsoom Nawaz is leading with big margin, followed by PTI candidate Dr Yasmin Rashid.
Senior PML-N leader Khawaja Saad Rafique, through his Twitter account, on behalf of his party had requested the relevant authorities to extend the time of the polling as a large number of voters were queuing outside polling stations.
“Voters should be given full right to cast their votes,” he had said.
NA-120 seat had fallen vacant after former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s disqualification by the Supreme Court on July 28.
The polling for by-election in Lahore’s NA-120 constituency began at 8am and continued till 5pm without any break.
