LAHORE: The election tribunal on Tuesday ordered the verification of thumbprints in the PP-160 and NA-128 constituencies in a petition submitted by Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf's Karamat Ali Khokhar, reported DawnNews.

There are 250 polling stations in NA-128 where PML-N candidate Afzal Khokhar was elected, and 197 polling stations in PP-160 where Saiful Mulook Khokhar, also from PML-N, was elected.

The election tribunal has ordered verification of thumbprints gathered from all polling stations in these two constituencies within a month, and has ordered that a report be provided to tribunal judge Kazim Ali Malik.

The records from the polling stations will be sent to National Database and Registration Authority's (NADRA) Islamabad office, in the care of the District Returning Officer's staff.

Proceedings for verification of thumbprints are expected to commence as soon as the records reach the NADRA office.
