The Supreme Court on Wednesday suspended a Lahore High Court (LHC) order to recount votes in NA-131, the Lahore constituency Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan snatched from Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Khawaja Saad Rafique with a close margin in the July 25 elections.
The LHC had barred the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) from issuing notice of Imran’s success until the process of recount is completed.
