|[DAWN] Pakistain 's (PTI) Dr Arifur Rehman Alvi has been elected the 13th President of Pakistain, according to results provided by the Election Commission of Pakistain.|
Alvi, who is now set to succeed the outgoing President Mamnoon Hussain, edged out PML-N backed chief of the Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA), Fazlur Rehman and senior PPP leader Aitzaz Ahsan in the presidential race by garnering more votes than both his rivals combined.
The ECP, in a , said that a total of 1,110 voters participated in the presidential polls held simultaneously at the Parliament House and the four provincial assembles today. Of the total votes cast, 27 votes were declared invalid.
|'We are ready for presidential battle': Mullah Diesel|
|[DAWN] Joint opposition's presidential candidate on Sunday declared that he is "ready for presidential battle" even if his attempts to convince PPP to withdraw their candidate Aitzaz Ahsan in his favour made little headway.|
Rehman, following a meeting with PML-N President in Lahore, delivered a media talk and made a last-ditch effort to convince PPP supremo to back him in the presidential election, set to be held in less than 48 hours on Tuesday.
"For my withdrawal, I will have to take into confidence five parties," said the JUI chief, whose party is one-fifth of the Muttahida Majlis‐e‐Amal (MMA) ‐ a religiopolitical alliance.
"For PPP it is easier to withdraw its candidate," he added in response to PPP leader Qamar-uz-Zaman Kaira's call for Rehman to withdraw his candidacy earlier in the day.
While there have been little signs that the impasse between the joint opposition and PPP could be thawed prior to Tuesday's poll, Rehman is not giving up on the challenge. "We are trying to have the PPP accept the joint opposition's decision and back a single candidate; Asif Ali Zardari and Aitzaz Ahsan are good friends of mine."
|Aitzaz Ahsan hopeful of winning presidential election with 'vote of conscience'|
|[DAWN] PPP stalwart and candidate for the presidential election Aitzaz Ahsan on Wednesday expressed hope that he would win the Sept 4 contest with the help of "votes of conscience".|
Talking to media outside the Election Commission of Pakistain (ECP) after acceptance of his nomination papers for the upcoming presidential elections, Aitzaz said, "The Constitution only binds a to vote as per party policy when it comes to voting on the budget, a constitutional amendment, or the election of the prime minister and chief ministers."
"The presidential election is a vote of conscience," he asserted, saying s are bound to vote for him based on what their conscience tells them.
He expressed hope that members of the Pakistain (PTI) as well as -Fazal (JUI-F) would therefore cast their votes in his favour.
The PPP leader also said he hoped that JUI-F chief Fazlur Rehman would withdraw in his favour.
Fazl withdraw? What'll you give him?
|Mullah Diesel still hopeful Mister Ten Percent 'would reconsider', back him in presidential election|
|[DAWN] Fazlur Rehman on Monday expressed hope that PPP co-chairperson would reconsider his decision and have his party vote for him in the September 4 presidential election, despite the impasse and tension between the two main opposition parties.-Fazl (JUI-F) chief |
Soon after senior PPP leaders blamed the PML-N and the media for the growing fissures within the opposition 'alliance', and seemed all but resigned to not reaching a consensus over a presidential candidate, Rehman ‐ the opposition's presidential nominee ‐ said he would try and convince Zardari to back him.
"The PPP did not vote in the prime minister's elections, which resulted in becoming the PM by four votes," Rehman said in a in Islamabad. "The act of dividing up the opposition is not popular in the public.
"It will be our effort to take him (Zardari) in confidence and convince him to reconsider his decision so that a joint candidate could contest."
The JUI leader said he "would like to meet Zardari today" to convince him to withdraw PPP nominee Aitzaz Ahsan's candidacy in his favour.
Rehman said the he and PML-N both "wanted the opposition's prime minister candidate to be from the PPP.
" the PPP people themselves said that the PM candidate should be from the PML-N. When a consensus was reached, then [the PPP] decided not to vote, which dispersed the opposition, and turned our hope ‐ our decision to go into the parliament and turn the tables ‐ into disappointment and despair."
|Aitzaz, Fazl (of all people) emerge as opposition's nominees for president after consensus eludes alliance|
|[DAWN] With the grand opposition alliance failing to reach consensus on a single nominee, the PPP's Aitzaz Ahsan and (JUI-F) chief on Monday emerged as the two candidates challenging Pakistain (PTI) candidate Dr Arif Alvi's bid for the head of state's office in the September 4 election.|
The failure of the opposition parties to field a joint candidate is expected to provide a virtual walkover to Dr Alvi, an MNA from Ahsan, Alvi and Fazl filed their papers for the election before the 12-noon deadline on Monday.
Fazl, who had suffered humiliating defeat on both seats he contested in the July 25 elections, was thrown another lifeline as the 'single nominee' of the opposition parties (except the PPP).
The JUI-F chief has submitted his nomination papers as a candidate fielded by the PML-N, Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal, , Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party and National Party.
PML-N leader Ameer Muqam will be Fazl's covering candidate.
