PML-N had no right to raise a hue and cry about the election results: Saeed Ghani

KARACHI (Dunya News) – Sindh Education Minister Saeed Ghani on Sunday said that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) lost the NA-249 election due to overconfidence and mismanagement.

Addressing a press conference, Saeed Ghani said the PML-N had no right to raise a hue and cry about the election results, adding that it was strange that no one protested when PML-N’s Miftah Ismail was in the lead.

On allegations that he somehow got ahold of the election results before they came out, Ghani said he had tweeted the numbers that were available to him from the form 45 issued by the Election Commission of Pakistan.

The provincial minister also clarified the videos circulating on the internet in which a PPP polling agent was stopped by a Rangers official, who finds out the agent is carrying some money.

He added that anyone who has contested an election knows that whenever a polling agent contests a vote he has to pay a fee. That is what our polling agents had," he said.
