KARACHI: President Asif Ali Zardari on Thursday said that the electoral victory of Abdul Qadir Gilani in Multan will reverberate in the annals of time as a stark reminder to everyone that it is the people and people alone who pronounce the final verdict and are not afraid of overturning all other ‘judgments.’

This he said in his felicitation message to Abdul Qadir, son of former Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, on his victory in the bye-election in NA 151 Multan.

According to unofficial results, Gilani secured 64628 votes and won the election with a lead of over four thousand votes.

In his message, the president termed the victory as vindication of the former premier and the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and recognition of the sacrifices of Gilanis for upholding the constitution and democracy in the country.
