Shares

KARACHI – The By Elections in Karachi PS 114 constituency has become a litmus test for the political parties popularity ahead of the General elections.

The polling for bye-election in PS-114 Karachi will be held tomorrow (Sunday).

As many as 27 candidates including Pakistan People’s Party’s (PPP) Senator Saeed Ghani, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) Muhammad Najeeb Haroon, Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan’s (MQM-Pakistan) Kamran Tessori and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s (PML-N) are contesting the by polls.

In May 2013 general elections, Irfanullah Marwat on a PML-N ticket had won the elections but his victory was declared void by the election tribunal in July 2014.

On May 11, the Supreme Court dismissed Marwat’s appeal challenging the ECP’s decision paving the way for the by-polls.
