Nisar Khuhro elected senator from Sindh in Senate by-elections

Nisar Khuhro bagged 99 votes and wins the contest as opposition parties boycotted the Senate by polls

The senior PPP leader and former provincial minister Nisar Khuhro has won the Senate by-polls in Sindh. Nisar Khuhro bagged 99 out of 101 votes polled as two votes were rejected. The opposition parties including PTI and MQM-P announced to boycott the Senate elections yesterday. The opposition members didn't take part in the election process.    

This seat fell vacant after former federal minister PTI Senator Faisal Vawda's disqualification. The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) disqualified PTI's Vawda as a lawmaker in February after it was found that he concealed his US nationality while submitting his nomination papers to the returning officer to take part in 2018 general elections. 

The Supreme Court of Pakistan rejected the plea of Faisal Vawda to stop the election on his seat.
