PP-282 Layyah by poll-PTI seems to have narrow lead over PML-N in this constituency

Neck to neck fight is expected between PTI and PML-N candidates

A tough contest is expected in PP-282 Layyah by poll. PTI seems to have narrow lead over PML-N in this constituency. Lot depends on the turnout on polling day. The difference between both parties is so narrow and contest is so close that the party which will be able to mobilise its voters in big numbers have a better chance to win. Both Imran Khan and Maryam Nawaz addressed big rallies in this constituency. 

Muhammad Tahir Randhawa is contesting on PML-N ticket and Qaisar Abbas Magsi is PTI’s candidate while Riaz Garwan (former PML-N ticket holder) is contesting as an independent candidate. Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) has fielded Shahid Iqbal Qadri and PPP (Shaheed Bhutto) awarded ticket to Rana Muzammil Abbas while seven candidates withdrew their nominations. Qaisar Magsi is trying hard to take revenge from Randhawa. 

In the 2018 general election, independent candidate Muhammad Tahir Randhawa had won PP-282 by getting 37,607 votes and PTI’s Qaisar Khan Magsi got second position by obtaining 26,992 votes while PML-N Riyaz Garwan polled 25,556 votes. Tahir Randhawa won the seat with the lead of nearly 11,000 votes.  Later, wining candidate Tahir Randhawa joined PTI.

Tahir Randhawa was de-seated by court after he supported Hamza Shahbaz in the election of the chief minister. He has a sizable personal vote bank in the constituency and many influential local politicians also supporting him. 

Pakistan People’s Party and JU-F did not field its candidate in the election and announced their support to PML-N.

As many as 195,116 total registered voters - 107,231 male and 87,885 female - would exercise their right to franchise.
