LAHORE: Following the victory of PML-N's candidate Nosheen Iftikhar in the hotly-contested NA-75 Daska by-elections as per unofficial results, the party's vice-president Maryam Nawaz took to Twitter and congratulated PML-N members and supporters in the constituency.
"Well done Daska! Congratulations to the zealous and brave people of [the constituency], Maryam Nawaz enthused.
"Once again, you have won the battle surrounding the "give respect the vote" narrative."
She further said that the people of Daksa have shown to the world how "an attempt was made to rob the honour of the vote on February 19 under the supervision of the puppet Prime Minister [Imran Khan]."
Earlier, Maryam Nawaz had said that those who wish to bring an end to Nawaz Sharif's politics should remember that Nawaz Sharif is the name of an ideology, not merely a politician.
"Nawaz Sharif's ideology has taken root in the hearts of the people," she had said, per Geo Urdu. "The days of this fake government are numbered and the day is not far when people will enjoy a real government in this country, not counterfeit ones."
On April 10, PML-N's candidate Noshin Iftikhar won the by-election in NA-75 Daska from Punjab.
According to unofficial, preliminary results from all 360 polling stations of the NA-75 Sialkot-IV constituency, Nosheen Iftikhar won the race with 110,075 votes. On the other hand, PTI's Ali Asjad Malhi received 93,433 votes.
This means the PML-N, according to the unofficial results, was able to obtain an edge of 16,642 over PTI.
As against the two major parties, the Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) received a total of 8,268.
