LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) has demanded of the Chief Election Commissioner to order re-counting in the constituencies from where the electoral body has been receiving more complaints.

PML-N chief Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain on Saturday presided over a meeting of the party ticket holders for the election 2013.

During the meeting he directed the PML-Q MPAs-elect in Balochistan to support National Party in the race for the slot of chief minister.

The PML-Q candidates who faced defeat in the recently held general election blamed the party’s alliance with the Pakistan People’s Party for the fiasco. They were of the view that the masses didn’t approve the party’s alliance with the PPP.

Reviewing the causes behind the defeat, Shujaat Hussain said that the PML-Q would play an active role as opposition party in Punjab and the centre.
