Imran Khan has challenged the election of Sardar Ayaz Sadiq, presently the National Assembly Speaker. The PTI chief had contested last year’s general election on four seats and was defeated by Ayaz Sadiq in this constituency while winning the other three.

Tribunal member Kazim Ali Malik issued the directive as 41 polling agents appeared before him. Out of these, eight had their statements recorded regarding allegations of rigging in NA-122.

The tribunal moreover dismissed two pleas filed by Ayaz Sadiq — one saying that the attestation in relation to the duties of PTI’s polling agents was bogus and the other which requested for the immediate summoning of Imran for cross-examination.
