PESHAWAR, 09 May: National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) has submitted with the Judicial Commission, probing rigging in the last general elections, report of thumbprints of the voters of National Assembly seat NA-122.

The NADRA report says that 50 per cent of the polled votes, numbering 93,500 ballots, in NA-122 were unverifiable, having no thumb impressions. Besides, 370 voters polled their votes without national identity cards and more than 6,000 people cast their votes without getting their identity cards verified.

National Assembly Speaker Ayaz Sadiq had emerged triumphant on this seat in 2013 general elections by bagging over 92,000 votes followed by Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf chief Imran got who polled over 80,000 votes. Imran Khan has accused the winning candidate of massive rigging in the polls.

A few days back, an Election Tribunal ordered fresh election on NA-125 after finding irregularities in the election process. Khwaja Saad Rafiq who won the seat in last general elections has challenged the decision of the tribunal before the Supreme Court.
