SC adjourns hearing of NA-125
From Our Correspondent
ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court yesterday adjourned the hearing of NA-125 rigging case without any proceedings. A 3-member bench headed by Justice Ejaz Afzal was to conduct hearing in the case after a span of one year and eleven months.
Election Tribunal had ordered re-election in the constituency after irregularities on the seats were proven during the 2013 general elections. Minister for Railways Khawaja Saad Rafique had secured 123,416 votes whereas his contender Hamid had obtained 84,495 votes from NA-125 constituency.
Hamid had challenged Rafique’s victory, alleging that he had rigged the elections, and a large number of bogus votes were cast in his favour.
