The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Wednesday rejected the election petition of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif requesting a re-election in NA-15, Mansehra, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

The returning officer for NA-15 Mansehra presented a report to the ECP bench, headed by Chief Election Commissioner Sikandar Sultan Raja. According to the report, the results for the entire NA-15 constituency were found to be accurate based on Forms 45.

Announcing the reserved judgment, the ECP bench instructed former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to seek a remedy through the Election Tribunal for his alleged claim of rigging in NA-15, Mansehra.

The ECP bench instructed the relevant Returning Officer to finalize the results within three days.
