Islamabad, August 7 (SO News/Agency) President of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and former Prime Minister Imran Khan has decided to contest by-elections on nine parliamentary seats. With this decision of Imran Khan, there is fear of loss of crores of rupees to the national treasury.
These seats have become vacant after the Speaker of the National Parliament of Pakistan accepted the resignation of some members of the PTI assembly. If Imran Khan wins the election in all these seats, he will have to resign from the remaining seats except one and hold by-elections there again.
According to an estimate, the minimum expenditure in the election of a constituency is likely to be around Rs 5 to 9 crore. Along with this, the cost in sensitive and remote areas will be around Rs 10 crore.
Imran Khan is already a member of the National Parliament. In the year 2018, Imran Khan contested elections from five constituencies, Islamabad, Bannu, Karachi, Mianwali and Lahore and won all these seats. He retained the Mianwali seat and resigned from the remaining four seats.
