NA-240 By Election 2022 Result | NA-240 Korangi Karachi Election Result 2022

As voting for the by-election began at 8 a.m. today, the MQM-P is hoping to keep the National Assembly seat in constituency NA-240, which includes parts of Korangi District’s Landhi (Thursday).

The seat became vacant after MQM-P MNA Muhammad Ali Khan died on April 19 this year. The voting will run continuously until 5 p.m.

Nadeem Haider, the Deputy Returning Officer (DRO), inspected the arrangements at all of the voting stations.

Haider told the media that the ECP has completed all of its preparations. For the by-election, he stated, 309 polling booths have been put up. The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has designated 203 polling stations as “very sensitive,” while the remaining 106 polling stations have been designated as “sensitive.”

The DRO further noted that in particularly sensitive polling sites, CCTV cameras have been deployed, as well as police and Rangers personnel.

Meanwhile, K-Electric has been ordered to ensure that the constituency gets uninterrupted power from June 15 to 17.

If prior performance and ethnic composition of a constituency are valid yardsticks, the MQM-P is expected to retain the NA-240 by-election. Given the current condition of affairs in Karachi, it is difficult to anticipate anything with precision.

Muhammad Abu Bakar, a member of the MQM-coordination P’s committee, is the party’s candidate, and he has received backing from the JUI-F. According to The News, the Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) has fielded Shahzada Shahbaz, alias Shahzada Kashif, for the by-election.

The PTI, which now holds the majority of MNAs from Karachi, has boycotted the by-election, as has the Jamaat-e-Islami (JI), which has been pursuing a campaign for Karachi’s rights.

Rafiuddin Faisal of the MQM-Haqiqi (MQM-H) and Nasir Lodhi of the PPP are the candidates. The PML-N has stated that it will back the PPP candidate.

Shabbir Qaimkhani is running on the Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) ticket. There are 529,855 voters in the constituency, with 294,385 men and 235,470 women.

The ballot papers had been printed, and CCTV cameras had been deployed at vulnerable polling sites, according to an ECP statement. Police officers are stationed at each voting location, while Rangers members serve as a ‘rapid response force.’
