Abstract: The much-anticipated election for the National Assembly Constituency NA-120 got over last week, with Begum Kulsoom, wife of Nawaz Sharif winning it. The PTI candidate, who was the real challenge to PML-N – Yasmin Rashid lost the election, though by a narrow margin. PPP came a distant sixth; its candidate gaining lesser votes than those parties that were formed only few weeks ago! If one goes by the results, the PML-N has won, and PTI has lost. It is a simple math and a clear conclusion. But is it? Does the bye-election, pose more questions to the winner, and also to the losers? Does the result in Lahore show a new trend in Punjab politics that would create new electoral benchmarks for the forthcoming national and provincial elections in 2018?
