Vote count underway as polling ends for PS-94 by-poll in Karachi’s Korangi

Posted on

The counting of votes is underway after polling ended on Sunday for the by-election on the Sindh Assembly constituency of PS-94, located in Karachi’s Korangi neighbourhood.

Voting had commenced at 8 am and continued uninterrupted till 5 pm without any major disturbance reported during the day. Voters who were present inside polling stations at 5 pm were allowed to cast their votes even after the end of the polling time.

The PS-94 Korangi Karachi-III seat had fallen vacant after the death of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) MPA Muhammad Wajahat in November last year.

A total of 28 aspirants had come in the field to contest the by-election, but unofficial and provisional results pouring in after the voting ended show the main fight was between the MQM and Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) candidates.

According to preliminary, unofficial results received so far, MQM-Pakistan’s Syed Hashim Raza is leading the race for the provincial seat, with PTI’s Muhammad Ashraf Jabbar trailing behind.
