In a significant electoral upset, Pakistan Awami Muslim League chief and former Federal Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed faced the forfeiture of his bail as he secured a mere 5,725 votes out of a total of 219,148 cast in Constituency NA 56.

 

Independent candidate Shehr Yar Riaz emerged as a formidable contender, securing second place with 82,613 votes.

 

Despite a total voter count of 523,733, including 251,274 women, the voter turnout was marked by a low 41.84 percent, with 4,156 votes being rejected.

 

The unexpected outcome in Sheikh Rasheed's constituency has sparked political discussions and implications for the future.
