PESHAWAR: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has decided to retain NA-95 Mianwali seat out of the five seats he won in the general elections.
Imran Khan had defeated the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) candidate Obaidullah Khan Shadikhel in his hometown by securing 162,499 votes. He also won elections from Karachi, Lahore, Bannu and Islamabad. It was first time in country’s history that a politician won five seats in an election. By-elections would be held for the seats vacated by the PTI chief.
Meanwhile, the Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA) candidate for PK-90 Bannu Akram Khan Durrani was declared winner on Tuesday after vote recount on the request of the PTI candidate Malik Adnan Khan.
Akram Durrani had lost to Imran Khan on the NA-35, Bannu seat. Now he may not contest again on the National Assembly seat and leave it for his party chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman who remained winless in the elections.
Malik Adnan may get NA-35 ticket from the PTI to try his luck again on the bigger seat.
