Counting of votes in the hotly-contested by-election on 20 constituencies of Punjab is underway and unofficial, preliminary results are trickling in.

Today’s polls remained largely peaceful aside from a few reports of clashes between supporters of opposing parties. No casualties were reported.

Other kinds of drama, however, stole the limelight. This included an early morning resignation, a leaked audio allegedly implicating the former interior minister, and a number of arrests, including that of PTI leader Shahbaz Gill.

Voter turnout was not as large as the parties hoped but was considerable, said by Minister for Interior Rana Sanaullah to be 40%.

A breakdown of the latest unofficial, preliminary results is given below as they come in:


6:17pm — PP-170 Lahore, polling station 22: PML-N in the lead

PML-N’s Amin Zulqarnain is in the lead with 134 votes, while PTI’s Zaheer Abbas is in second place with 66 votes.
