Pakistan Peoples Party’s (PPP) Saeed Ghani won the PS-114 by-polls.

According to unofficial results, Saeed bagged 23,840 votes while the runner-up MQM-P got 18,106 votes in 92 polling stations across the constituency.

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s (PML-N)Ali Akbar Gujjar, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) Najeeb Haroon and Jamaat-e-Islami’s Zahoor Ahmed Jadoon bagged 5,353, 5,098 and 1,661 votes, respectively.

 Ghani appeared the strongest candidate since the beginning of his election campaign because not only the constituency was his home ground but he was also backed by labor organisations, minorities’ alliances and two religious political parties, Jamiat Ulema Islam (Noorani) and Majlis Wahdatul Muslimeen.

MQM-P’s Tessori had the support of Muhajir Qaumi Movement -Haqiqi, amounting to almost non-existent support, and of some minority organisations. MQM-H chief Afaq Ahmed had announced to support the MQM-P candidate just two days before the polling.
