The ruling PML-N on Monday emerged victorious in by-elections held on 21 national and provincial seats, according to provisional results released by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).

On Sunday, by-polls were held across the country amid allegations of “record rigging”, temporary suspension of cellular services in specific districts of Punjab and Balochistan and multiple incidents of violence, leading to the death of a PML-N supporter in a clash outside a Narowal polling station.

By-elections were held on five NA seats, including two from Punjab, two from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and one from Sindh. Further, 12 provincial seats were also up for grabs in Punjab as well as two each in KP and Balochistan.

Separately, re-polling in all constituencies of Balochistan’s PB-50 (Qila Abdullah) was also held.

According to the provisional results (Forms-47) issued by the ECP, out of the five NA seats, the PML-N won two from Punjab while the Sunni Ittehad Council (SIC) and an independent candidate won one each from KP. Meanwhile, the PPP clinched the NA seat from Sindh.

In Punjab, the PML-N grabbed 10 provincial seats while the Istehkam-i-Pakistan Party (IPP) won one. In KP, one seat each went to the SIC and an independent candidate.

In Balochistan, the PML-N and the Balochistan National Party-Mengal (BNP-M) won one provincial seat each. Separately, the Awami National Party (ANP) also won a provincial seat from PB-50, where re-polling was conducted.

The greatest thing that has been done is to remove
the MQM and impose the PPP mafia. Now what is happening to
the people of Karachi and their businesses is
that they have been completely deprived and have no job.
the people want to steal their lives from these beasts,
this mafia has not destroyed and ruined this city,
Shias and Sindhis have sat down in all Institutions and hijacked
the whole city and the whole city is my Shia Guardi or Sindh Guardi.
The city used to run the economy of the entire country,
today the Sindhi Wadira mafia has destroyed it, sorry for this on Karachi.
