Khan was right about NA-125 irregularities!

  • NADRA report says 280 out of 1,254 votes in NA-125 found fake, majority of votes could not be verified
  • A single person casted six votes in PS-6 while 12 people at PS-98 casted their votes twice

The National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) has confirmed irregularities in the National Assembly constituency NA-125, Lahore-VIII held by Railways Minister Khwaja Saad Rafique.

In a 125-page NADRA report on six polling stations of NA-125 issued Saturday, it has been found that several votes were casted on fake national identity cards (CNICs), due to which the thumb impressions on the votes could not be verified while CNIC numbers found in the counterfoils also turned out to be bogus.

The report stated that a majority of votes in all the investigated polling stations could not be verified, while at some places, such as PS-6, up to six votes were casted by a single person.

As many as 280 votes out of 1,254 votes checked have been found to be fake while 12 people at PS-98 have been reported to have casted their votes twice.

The polling stations that were checked by NADRA included PS-110, PS-107, PS-98, PS-6 and PS-5.

Railways Minister Khawaja Saad Rafique of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had won the election in this constituency in May 2013 while Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Hamid Ali Khan had stood runner-up and had challenged the decision on this seat in the election tribunal.

While commenting on the NADRA report on NA-125, Hamid Khan said that PTI has been reiterating from the first day that the elections in 2013 were massively rigged. He said that the points raised by PTI have been proven right.

“The NADRA report shows that Saad Rafique stole the elections,” he said.

Meanwhile, former ECP secretary Kanwar Dilshad has said that following the NADRA’s report, Khwaja Saad Rafique can be declared ‘ineligible’. He added that the report has reaffirmed Imran Khan’s demand to open four constituencies.


  1. Need we day more? Open your eyes pakistan! Open the ballot boxes and do a recount. In not a fan of IK or PTI – but as a pakistani i want to feel my vote has counted towards democratically electing a government and prime minister. Rather than the strong and powerful being able to rig an election and sit on their thrones to rule the weak and poor.

  2. If the re fount proves that pml are still holding a majority then let them serve their five years. And if it proves riggin then hang the culprits by the neck for treason. And let it be a lesson to future politicians. Politics is to serve your country. Not to get rich.

  3. Now I understand why Saad Rafique looses his temper when asked for vote recount. Sharam Karo and resign from the post.

  4. Over tge years…PMLN has mastered the art of managing elections….They did so this time around as well….this is the only reason that they are afrais of opening poll records…for how long they can delay
