He said in the tribunal order there was also no mention about the recounting of the total votes. “I have the right to sue the media persons and concerned opponents for the baseless propaganda against me,” the MPA warned. The negative propaganda has caused damages to my status, reputation and mental agony to my family members and supporters, the MPA said. The election tribunal said: “It is held that there is no justification for ordering recounting of votes of the entire constituency in PK-90 Chitral-II. But as far the rejected votes, postal ballot papers and three votes found in the ballot box of National Assembly are concerned, these votes warrant examination, recounting in terms of section 39 of the Act of 1976 read with Rule 26 of the ROPA (conduct of election) rules 1977”. It added: “To execute the above order appointment of commission is warranted. Therefore the case is listed for September 12 for appointment of a commission in presence of both the parties.”]]>
