LAHORE 

A Returning Officer re-issued notice to 14 different candidates who contested general elections on an application seeking recounting of votes here on Monday. Additional District and Sessions Judge Waseem-ur-Rehman Khakwani heard the application. The RO expressed dismay over the non-compliance of his earlier order and re-issued notice till Feb 16th. Bushra Aitzaz, the PPP candidate, filed the suit and submitted that the votes were cast more than the real votes in the constituency concerned. She alleged that some non-democratic elements were involved in rigging.  She requested the Election Commission to recount the votes in NA-124. Earlier, the officer issued notices to 15 candidates including PML-N MNA Rohail Asghar. However, Rohail Asghar appeared before the Returning Officer but rest of 14 did not appear and they were issued notice again.
