Cast, it was written that the certified votes are 5110, there is a difference of hundreds of votes in each UC, there were many abuses by ROs and polling staff.
The Chief Election Commissioner directed that you file a complaint, we will re-run the election here, Form 11 is the most important, he strongly emphasized in this regard. 11 was not given, then later Hafiz Naeem confirmed to us that Form 11 was received, then it was said that the result of RO is coming separately and Form 11 is coming separately, if there is a difference between the result of Form 11 and RO. If so, it will be correct.
