Mr Aziz managed to get 49 votes from a total of 77 votes,therefore, won the seat of mayor. Mr Aziz said that his first priority is to develop rural areas and to facilitate underdeveloped areas. Although PTI was not happy but candidate Raja Khurram Nawaz has made sure to provide a productive opposition.
