Siddique Baloch of Pakistan Muslim League Noon (PML-N) won the NA 154 election in 2013. But later in August 2015, Electional tribunal disqualified Sidique Baloch due to fake academic credentials. Election Commission of Pakistan has written a letter to the secretary ministry of water and power for no load shedding on the polling day 23rd December 2015. Moreover Chief Secretary Punjab has also been requested by the ECP to announce a public holiday on the polling day.
Total of 303 polling stations have been set up for the NA-154 by elections and 425,000 ballot papers were printed and dispatched to the district returning officer. A very tough competition is expected between Siddique Baloch of PML-N’s and PTI’s Jahangir Tareen Khan. Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) is supporting Jahangir Tareen of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf in NA-154 by-elections.
The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has appointed its regional election officer in Multan as the district returning officer to supervise the contest in NA-154. EDO Education and ETO Lodhran will act as the assistant returning officers.
Like NA-122, where PML-N’s Ayaz Sadiq emerged victorious again in October 11 by-polls, NA-154 was among the four constituencies the PTI had asked the government to initially investigate for vote rigging complaints after the last general elections held on May 11, 2013.
The PTI is likely to invest its full manpower and material resources in its by-poll contestant Jahangir Tareen – one of the wealthiest party leaders and also the PTI secretary general.
Tareen had challenged the May 2013 victory of PML-N’s Siddique Khan Baloch in NA-154 before the PTI began its infamous 126-day sit-in protest in Islamabad in 2014.
Earlier this year, an election tribunal annulled the results and barred Baloch from contesting polls over his dubious educational credentials.
