LAHORE: Irrespective of the outcome, the bye-election on Lahore’s NA-120 seat is expected to be extremely gripping for political analysts and general public both. This seat had fallen vacant following the disqualification of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif on the orders of the Supreme Court on July 28, a decision that remained the same on Sept 15, when nine review petitions filed by the Sharif and company were thrown out by the apex court.
LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League (N) candidate Begum Kulsoom Nawaz, the currently ailing three-time former First Lady of the country, effectively kept her husband Nawaz Sharif’s 32-year old vote bank intact by clinching Sunday’s tense bye-election from Lahore’s historic NA-120 constituency. While Kulsoom was not personally present on the spot for being under medical treated in London, her fruitful and untiring election campaign was led by her eldest daughter Maryam Nawaz.
LAHORE: A tiresome research conducted into the constituency-wise results of all the National Assembly elections held in Lahore during the last 47 years since December 1970 shows that the politicians featuring on the top of the popularity graphs drawn after each electoral exercise may not fall in the league of the better known national political heavyweights.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
