Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI) candidate Awais Dareshak has been elected unopposed from PP-296 (Rajanpur) constituency.

The constituency of PP-296 fell vacant because of the tragic passing away of Tariq Dareshak due to brain hemorrhage on 5th August 2018. Previously, Tariq Dareshak had won against independent candidate Sardar Muhammad Yousaf Dareshak.

For the by-polls, a total of 14 candidates had obtained their nomination papers out of which only five candidates had submitted the forms. However, four candidates including Atta Muhammad Asif, Rana Sanaullah, Ijaz Khamar and Ghulam Mujtaba Dareshak withdrew from the elections in favour of Awais Dareshak.

The ECP will issue a formal notification of the victory as well.
