A three-bench led by Justice Umar Ata Badial issued the order after hearing both sides. The top court ordered to hold re-polling in the Daska by-election on April 10 and disposed of petition filed by PTI candidate.

On March 25, the top court had halted ECP from re-polling in NA-75 Daska by-election scheduled to be held on April 10.
