The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Wednesday issued a written order, dismissing Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) candidate Abid Sher Ali's plea for a vote recount in NA-108 Faisalabad.
Hearing the petition yesterday, a single bench of the high court comprising Justice Mamoon Rashid Sheikh had announced a short order on the petition.
The petitioner was advised to approach the relevant forum against the verdict if need be.
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) candidate Farrukh Habib had defeated Ali in the constituency by 1,200 votes.
It is pertinent to mention here that on August 3, the court had stopped the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) from issuing Habib's victory notification from the constituency. The bar ended after the dismissal of the petition.
