On Monday, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) president Bilawal Bhutto Zardari reported that the ‘election of Gilgit-Baltistan’ was robbed, as preliminary results from Sunday’s polls revealed that the party only managed to bag three seats.
In front of the returning officer’s office in the city, the party chairman also engaged in a demonstration against suspected rigging.
As the party and its allies managed to win at least 11 seats, according to provisional and unconfirmed estimates, the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) emerged as the victor of the Gilgit-Baltistan elections.
The PTI won 10 seats, independent candidates won seven and three seats were won by the PPP.
In one out of a total of 23 constituencies, Majlis Wahdatul Muslimeen (MWM), an ally of PTI, emerged victorious, though Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) only managed to bag two seats.
