SIALKOT: On a petition filed by the Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N), the Election Commission of Pakistan has announced its decision regarding by-poll in NA-75 Daska.
Viewing irregularities in the by-election, the ECP has ordered to hold election again in the constituency of Sialkot on March 19.
The opposition had alleged that presiding officers did not show up on 20 polling stations to announce results which amounted to rigging in the election.
