Sialkot (Web Desk) Former foreign minister Khawaja Asif remained unbeaten after a recount of votes in Sialkot’s NA-73 constituency on Sunday.
After Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) leader Usman Dar requested a recount of votes in the constituency, 7,386 votes and postal ballots that were rejected in the election, were counted again.
Following the exercise, Asif remained unbeaten with 117,002 votes to Dar’s 115,596 votes. Dar was defeated by a margin of 1,406 votes.
However, the PTI leader, while addressing local party workers, refused to accept defeat and continued to allege rigging at several polling stations in the Sialkot-II constituency.
PML-N heavyweight Khawaja Asif has remained unbeatable in NA-73 for the sixth consecutive time.
