PMLN faces increasing pressure to accept their defeat gracefully and avoid forming the government on allegedly stolen and fake mandates on social media. PTI-backed candidates, several analysts, and journalists are claiming that PTI was winning with a heavy margin in almost all the constituencies across Pakistan, however, they are declared losers on Form 47.
President Jamaat-e-Islami Karachi, Hafiz Naeem-ur-Rehman, has decided to vacate his seat PS-129 of the Sindh Assembly in favor of PTI-backed candidate Saif Bari.
According to Naeem-ur-Rehman, the PTI-backed candidate Safi Bari had won from this constituency. The JI leader added that he has all the form 45s, which indicates Bari won from the constituency.
He announced to vacate the seat in a presser on Monday morning. “I am being given PS129 in charity while this seat has been won by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf candidate Saif Bari. I did not win this seat. My 26000 votes were reduced to 30 thousand. I return this seat, don’t want a charity seat,” said Jamaat-e-Islami Karachi Ameer Hafiz Naeem-ur-Rehman.
The PS-129 constituency covers the area of North Nazimabad area of Karachi. Naeem ur Rehman has been garnering praise for stepping up against the alleged manipulation with the results of the recently concluded General Elections 2024.
Other candidates such as Mahmood Khan Achakzai, Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar, and a few others have admitted that PTI-backed candidates won from their respective candidates and that they should be given their due mandate.
Several other candidates including Nawabzada Lashkar Raisani and Mahmood Khan Achakzai in their pressers claimed that they had refused to accept seats on fake election mandates.
Several politicians have called for PMLN to accept their defeat gracefully and let PTI make the government. Muhammad Zubair and Shahid Khaqan Abbasi have called PMLN to gracefully accept the defeat and sit in opposition. PMLN and PPP, however, are in discussion to form the government.
