PTI’s Zeeshan Khanzada Grabs Senate Seat Defeating Opposition Candidate

PESHAWAR: Zeeshan Khanzada of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf won by-election on the vacant seat of the senate from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

With a total of 139 votes polled in the house of 145 lawmakers, the PTI candidate needed a minimum of 70 votes to win the by-election on the Senate general seat.

Zeeshan, however, secured a total of 104 votes — 94 from PTI lawmakers, one from the PML-Q, one from an independent lawmaker, four from the Balochistan Awami Party and four from opposition parties’ MPAs who apparently voted against their joint candidate.
