PS-114 Karachi XXVI

The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has announced to hold by-election in Sindh Assembly constituency, PS-114 Karachi XXVI, on Sunday July 9, 2017.

PS-114 Karachi XXVI seat vacated after disqualification of PML-N’s lawmaker Irfanullah Marwat in 2014. He had won the seat in 2013 general elections.

MQM’s Abdur Rauf Siddiqui, who was runner-up, had challenged Marwat’s success.

Marwat challenged the tribunal’s decision in the Supreme Court but the apex court, earlier this month, did not rule in his favour and ordered re-election in the constituency.

The constituency is located in Mehmoodabad and Manzoor Colony areas where tough competition is likely between PPP and PML-N on the seat in by-polls.

More than 30 candidates have filed nomination papers for the July 9 by-elections in PS-114 Karachi XXVI with all three major parties — the Muttahida Qaumi Move­ment (MQM), the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) — in the field, it emerged on Saturday.

Revised and final list with symbols of all contesting candidates are listed below.
