2/3rd Majority

During the ongoing PANAMA hearings by the SC,  many a stalwart of the PML (N) leadership has hinted at going to the Awaami Court who they claim had returned MNS with 2/3 majority.  Just to be sure, I dug up some of the old newspapers and found the following:

The total number of the registered voters for the 2013 election was  86,194,802

 

Thus PML (N) polled  9,781,703  / 86,194,802  X 100 = 11.35 per cent  which is not even simple 51% majority what to talk of 2/3rd majority. It is as simple as that out of 86,194,802 registered voters a very hefty number of  76,413,099 voters did not vote for it.

 

Do they have any moral justification of going to them for the final decision?
