ABBOTTABAD: Omer Ayub Khan of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz won elections for National Assembly seat, NA-19, Haripur, by securing 2,852 votes against his rival Raja Amir Zaman Khan of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf, who bagged 2,263 votes at seven polling stations in the constituency.

In May 2013 general elections, Raja Amir Zaman was declared winner from the constituency after recounting of votes with a margin of 23 votes.
