LAHORE: The Lahore High Court(LHC) suspended the notification of the victory of PML-N’s Azhar Qayyum Nahra from NA-81 Gujranwala.

Justice Shahid Karim heard the request of Chaudhry Bilal Ejaz of the Sunni Ittehad Council.

In the petition, the stand was adopted that Chaudhry Bilal Ejaz was declared successful in the February 8 election with 8,000 votes.

The petitioner thought that the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) declared the opposition candidate Azhar Qayyum Nahra successful in the recount of votes.

In his petition, Bilal Ijaz alleged that the returning officer had declared Azhar Qayyum the winner by reducing the petitioner’s votes on recounting of votes.
