The by-elections in Pakistan have brought good news for Imran Khan. It is clear from the by-election that the public wants to support Imran Khan. The Imran-led Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) won six National Assembly and two Punjab Assembly seats in the bypolls. It is believed that these by-elections will clear the way for the next general elections. In fact, it was a test of major political parties.
Imran won five seats
For the first time in the country, Imran himself was contesting from seven seats. PTI won six of the eight National Assembly seats. The PTI chief won seats in Peshawar, Mardan, Charsadda, Faisalabad and Nankana Sahib by defeating candidates of the ruling coalition. However, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party lost a crucial National Assembly seat in Multan, where Ali Musa Gilani, son of former Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, defeated Mehr Bano Qureshi, daughter of former Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi.
According to media reports, PTI has also won from Mardan National Assembly seat and Khanewal Provincial Assembly seat. According to the results, the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz also won one provincial assembly seat, but was trailing behind PTI in other seats. Elections were held for a total of 11 seats, including eight National Assembly seats and three Provincial Assembly seats.
Voting took place amid sporadic violence
Earlier, polling began at 8 am yesterday and continued peacefully in some constituencies and witnessed intense political activity in the country with sporadic clashes in some. As the voting process began yesterday, Khan asked the people of the respective constituencies to cast their votes in large numbers. Khan had said in a tweet, ‘This is a referendum for real freedom from the gang of miscreants. We are all fighting the elections against the PDM, the Election Commission and the ‘Naamlum Afraad’.
How will Imran Khan’s victory in the bypolls affect him?
Let us tell you that Imran Khan is continuously demanding elections after coming out of power. On the other hand, the Shahbaz government is not in the mood to hold elections early. This is the reason why Imran Khan talked about taking out ‘Long March’. There is also a huge crowd in Imran’s meetings. Even more it seems that Imran wants to get the elections done soon after understanding the sentiments of the people. Now the results of the by-elections have also told that Imran Khan can give some ‘big’ results in the upcoming elections. On the other hand, the Shahbaz government is worried about Imran’s popularity. Government ministers are giving statements on Imran’s long march that no security will be guaranteed.
