Votes have been cast but Pakistan doesn’t seem to be edging closer to a resolution as far as the battle between former cricketer Imran Khan’s PTI and Nawaz Sharif’s Pakistan Muslim League is concerned. While Imran Khan’s party seems to be slightly ahead, it still remains a few seats shy of the majority mark. Amid this deadlock situation where no resolution seems straightforward, Pakistani cricketer Mohammad Amir wrote a cryptic post on social media, involving former captain Imran Khan, catching the entire Pakistan cricketing fraternity’s attention.
“Batsman kis ko dekh rha hai wese bht hi piyari picture hai (Who is the batsman looking at? A beautiful picture),” Amir wrote on X (formerly Twitter) with a picture of Imran Khan.

The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has issued orders to hold re-elections at various polling places nationwide following the verification of complaints regarding the snatching and damaging of voting materials, reported by Geo News.
Having crossed through all challenging phases in conducting nationwide elections on February 8, the poll organising authority is now in the final stages of announcing vote results as the compilation process enters its 48th hour.
According to Geo News, the commission responded to complaints from different parts of the country regarding incidents of snatching and damaging voting material at various polling stations, prompting local election officials to postpone voting processes.
In a recent development, the top electoral body has scheduled re-polling at multiple polling stations on February 15. Results from these polling stations will be announced upon the completion of the re-polling event.
The ECP has mandated re-polling at 25 polling stations in the mentioned constituency due to damage caused to voting material by terrorists on election day.
Meanwhile, the electoral body has instructed the regional election commissioner to submit a probe report within three days regarding complaints of vandalism at a polling station in NA-242 Karachi Keamari-I-Sindh.
