Islamabad, July 20 (IANS) Abdul Qadir Gilani, son of former prime minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, has won the by-election to a seat that fell vacant following his father’s disqualification, a media report said Friday.
Pakistan Peoples Party candidate Abdul Qadir Gilani won the by-election in NA-151, reported Geo News.
According to unofficial results, Gilani narrowly defeated independent candidate Shaukat Hayat Bosan by securing 64,628 votes.
