The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has rejected an application filed by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif for the recounting of votes in the National Assembly constituency of NA-15, Mansehra.

“The petitioner may approach the Election Tribunal,” the verdict said.

ECP ordered the returning officer to submit the complete results in three days.


Nawaz Sharif’s lawyer said that the elections were unconstitutional, illegal, and against the election rules.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)-supported candidate Shahzada Gustasap Khan won the election in NA-15 by getting 105,249 votes.

The PML-N supremo was in second position with 80,382 votes in the same constituency.
