LAHORE – In a disgusting event 12 votes of the Punjab MPAs were rejected today being considered invalid by the Election Commission as the lawmakers were not educated enough to cast a valid vote.
Ashraf took 298 votes in Punjab Assembly and easily defeated the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) candidate Dr Zarqa who only managed to get 38 votes from the provincial lawmakers.
Out of the 368 seats in the provincial assembly, votes were casted by only 346 members. The 300 legislators of PML-N casted their votes while other nine remained absent with two vote rejected.
Maryam Nawaz congratulated the winning candidate on Twitter and criticised those who claimed of a split in the party.
