PML(N) Lost Three While PTI Lost Two NA Seats Won In General Elections
Pakistan Muslin League-Nawaz lost three seats from Dera Ghazi Khan, Rajanpur and Okara in by-elections that it grabbed in May 11 election,in Punjab. PTI's Ahmad Ali Dareshak was declared as successful with 22040 votes from PP-243 Dera Ghazi Khan which was vacated by PML-N stalwart Zulfiqar Ali Khosa. Howeever, his two sons Hassam Khosa from PML-N and Saif Khosa from PPP contedted the by-election in the constituency, giving benefit to PTI. Similarly, PP-247, Rajanpur deserted by Hamza Sharif was taken by Raza Khan Dreshak. PPP's Khurram Dastgir was declared victorius from PP-1903 Okara defeating Nurul Amir of PML. Pakistan Tehreek e Insaaf lost two important seats in NA-1 Peshawar and NA-72 Mianwali won and vacated by Imran Khan. Peshawar seat was won by Bilour while Mianwali seat was won by Obaidullah Shadi khel. Though Bilour won the seat but the six thousand lead of votes is not much as the Bilour family is very much inmfluencial in the area and this seat was vever lost by them. Gul Badsha yhough got defeated but it can not be said that the people of KPK are dissatisfied with PTI's government. However, PTI won National Assebly's seat in Swabi and Islamabad. It is astonishing that people also cast their votes in favor of PPP that destroyed the country and gave no relief to the people during their five year power tenure.
