Sunday saw many residents of Punjab heading to polling booths for a crucial by-election, the results of which will pose a threat to Hamza Shehbaz’s government in Punjab. The PTI won 15 seats and netizens took the opportunity to liven up Twitter with the help of some memes poking fun at PML-N Vice-President Maryam Nawaz.

On July 17, PTI routed the PML-N by winning 15 seats in the crucial by-elections on 20 seats that were left vacant after the disqualification of PTI members who had voted for Hamza for the Punjab chief minister’s office.

Taking the opportunity, some Twitter users thought they knew how Maryam was watching the results in quarantine after testing positive for Covid-19.

Others had some advice on where to start checking the results.

Some could picture her reaction.

Bhool Bhulaiyaa’s Majulika also entered the chat.

There were A LOT of crying memes — we sense a pattern here.

We meant it.

But for all the crying memes, Maryam accepted the results and tweeted that one must accept defeat as it’s common in politics to win and lose.

Celebrities also lined up to comment on the results, including Faysal Quraishi, Muneeb Butt, Haroon Shahid, Samina Peerzada, Mariyam Nafees and Anoushey Ashraf.
