Later Khawaja Saad had petitioned to recount of votes of the entire constituency which was rejected by the returning officer after that he challenged this decision in LHC's election tribunal.

While the ECP withheld his victory notifications from two constituencies, it declared him victor from three others from where he contested, subject to the decision of a pending litigation against him over alleged violation of the election code of conduct.

Though the election Commission's statement did not explain the nature of the violation that led to some results being withheld, it apparently referred to the violation of the secrecy of the vote due to the stamping of ballot papers in a constituency in Islamabad on the table of the presiding officer, instead of voters going behind a screen. But the Supreme Court suspended the Lahore High Court's order to re-tabulate results and accepted Khan's petition against the ruling.

Accepting the plea of PML-N leader, recount in the constituency was held however, Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) upheld PTI chief's victory as votes of Saad soared by just 125 whereas those of Khan augmented by just 50 after the recount.

The chief justice observed he will not leave any constituency without representation in parliament (owing to the withholding of winning candidates' notification by ECP).

Rafique, after losing the recount, appealed the election commission to recount all votes cast in the constituency.

Soon after the apex court's verdict, Khan's lawyer Babar Awan wrote to the poll panel, requesting it to issue the notification of Khan's victory in two seats in Lahore and Islamabad.

The PML-N leader requested the returning officer (RO) to conduct a recount of the rejected votes. He further stated that the recount of rejected votes and five polling stations reduced 117 votes from Imran's tally. The PML-N leader had then challenged the decision in the Lahore High Court. "I have been deprived of my basic right of recount, which is allowed by the new legislation", he wrote.

Later, former railway minister approached LHC who barred ECP from issuing notification of PTI chairman Imran Khan's success and ordered recount in the entire constituency.
