Funny enough PTI is moaning on these reserved seats but forgetting how they got these seats in 2018.

Just to remind some of our members here. Despite a setback PML-N was still the largest party in Punjab during Election 2018 with 164 seats followed by PTI with 159 seats. There were sizeable number of independent MNAs who were asked by election commission to join the party of their choice.

PTI tasked Jahangeer Tareen to convince these independent MNAs joined PTI and his famous jet played a key role in these visits across Punjab. The number of reserved seats were decided on the basis of final count when they were given a lot more reserved seats than PML-N as independent candidates had joined PTI.

The bottom line is PTI couldn't have get these many reserved seats on the basis of election and if I am not wrong ended up getting 28 reserved seats compared to PML-N’s 16-22 as I don't remember the exact number now.

What's wrong in that?

Independents have ALWAYS been wooed by the party in power and joined the govt, 2008, 2013, every single election. Even in the 90's.

Yes, but CM Hamza/Shahbaz will rig the Zimni elections massively on 16th July having the powers of CM and controlling the bureaucracy, ECP and the govt. machinery.

And Neutrals supporting PMLN as well with reports of one Brig. Rashid, the sector incharge of Intel. looking after the elections and managing it.

This is an uphill task, it is next to impossible that people will vote for Lotas, unless rigged they will loose heavily, and this must be the plans.

He just need one fourth of all seats.

Folks, hold your horses. This decision does nothing to Hamza.

The LHC ordered 'recounting' of the votes which were already cast, without counting the votes of the dissidents. PTI still does not get the reserved member votes back. This isn't a new election, it's a recount.

ECP is delaying the notification of the 5 reserved seats deliverately for this reason, so they do not get to take part in this and PTI still does not have majority.

THe biggest joke of this country is that the detailed order for this case has come, but ECP hasn't got the detailed order for the 5 reserved seats.

Yesterday the N league booked 140 odd rooms in a hotel...doesn't this indicate to some mischief here, that they already knew what the decision was going to be and they prepared their MPA's?

Hence, a misleading thread title, perhaps?

Following due process correctly is all-important here for the recount.

ECP legally cannot wait for detailed verdict for 5 reserved seats.

p.s. why LHC issued a detailed verdict itself today and is not issuing any detailed verdict for 5 reserved seats...looks like they are in complete bed with PMLN....PTI should now immediately consult SC.

It is short verdict, detailed verdict will come after this. For reserved seats' verdict there is no formula given for distribution of reserved seats in short verdict. According to me PMLN should be awarded two seats from those 5 seats.

Nothing wrong in it except a deleted paragraph in my last post that everybody accused PTI of using establishment support and cash of Jahangir Tareen to buy these votes

PS: Not defending PML-N as whatever happened in 2018 was happened in 1970s, 1990s and 2008, 2013 before 2018.

And no doubt PML-N played cheaply in 2022 to oust the ruling government

Edit again: it also negates the point that the largest party should always form the government

What do you mean in 2018 ? They got those seats before IK was elected from NA which is perfectly fine ....none of them contested on PMLN ticket in 2018 elections and later joined PTI. Nearly all of them were independent candidates. Huge difference. Don't spread false information based on twisted views.

This is short order.

I have read that during end of times; the judges will pass judgements in favor of crooked, and avoid giving swift justice to people (aka justice denied). In urdu "bahana saazi" (making excuses, playing with technicalities, delaying tactics)
