N's Kulsoon Nawaz wins NA-120 by

Kulsoom Nawaz wife of Nawaz Sharif leaves her Islamabad residence prior to departing the country

Maryam Nawaz, the daughter of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, departed for London on Monday to see her ailing mother, Kulsoom Nawaz.

Talking to reporters outside the court, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader and Minister for Information Technology Anusha Rahman said the court's decision was a "disappointment" for her party.

Meanwhile, PML-N leader Maryam Nawaz Sharif says that the people of NA-120 have rejected the politics of chaos and conspiracies.

Maryam, who is being seen as a political heir to Sharif, further said that the PML-N fought the NA-120 election against the PTI and "hidden forces" that were involved in the ouster of her father.

The PML-N wanted to demonstrate that support for the Sharif family was undiminished despite the Supreme Court's removal of Nawaz, who has kept control of the party and installed long-term ally Shahid Khaqan Abbasi as prime minister. The Election Commission of Pakistan is expected to announce the final and official result in a day or two.

At one side, there was the PML-N. She defeated key rival Tahreek-e-Insaf party's candidate Dr. Yasmin Rashid.

He said, "No legal sanction for the [general council ] meeting and those who attended are not general council members". Saravanan said it is a fallacy to say that the party is going to join hands with them.

Mr Sharif has always denied any wrongdoing but the Supreme Court recently dismissed petitions seeking a review of that decision.

Some voters complained that the process inside the polling stations was taking too long and that some of the polling stations were without electricity.

With nearly all members of the Sharif family in London as well as Mr Dar, it seems unlikely that they would appear before the accountability court on Tuesday and Wednesday.

"Our country is on fire, we are all on fire, that is why I am here to vote", said Asifa Aamir, 47, who said she was concerned with corruption as her primary issue in this by-election.

Faisal Mir, the candidate of the main opposition Pakistan Peoples Party, got only 1,414 votes raising questions about the party's position in Punjab province.

The election was also significant because of Muhammad Yaqub Sheikh, a USA designated terrorist.
