Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Tuesday while reacting to the Election Commission of Pakistan’s (ECP) decision of recounting in NA-249 said that his party would also consider approaching the commission for recounting in previous seats.

In his latest tweet, the PPP chairman welcomed the new precedent set by allowing consistency wide recount without specific polling station complaints.

He said, “Many seats from 2018 fall within 5 percent threshold and candidates have not been given this chance.”

Bilawal went on to say that once ECP order is out, the PPP will consider going to ECP for recounts in all such seats.
