    The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N)’s candidate Sheikh Ansar Aziz was elected on Monday as the first-ever mayor of Islamabad.

    According to unofficial results, Aziz secured 49 votes against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)’s Raja Khurram Nawaz, who received only 26 votes, Radio Pakistan reported.

    The ruling party’s Chaudhry Riffat Javed, Syed Zeeshan Ali Naqvi and Muhammad Azam Khan have also been elected as deputy mayors of the federal capital.

    Polling for the top slot and three deputy mayors began on Monday morning at the Jinnah Convention Centre. The elections were held through secret ballot and the polling continued till 5pm without any break.

    No particular excitement or upsets were expected in the election as the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had an approximate two-third majority in the Islamabad Metropolitan Corporation (IMC). Seventy-seven elected office-bearers of IMC were eligible to cast their votes.

    I bet he'll be given all the powers he needs as mayor in a heartbeat. It's only Karachi that must suffer the wrath of the Sindhi wadera Qabza group.
