Election campaign ends, historic voting tomorrow
KARACHI: The high-intensity election campaign, marred by a series of blasts, came to a close last night as the nation goes to historic polls to exercise their right to franchise on Wednesday (tomorrow).
Election will take place on July 25 (tomorrow) and voting will continue from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm without any break.
The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) caped their electioneering last night by holding massive rallies in different parts of the country as a last-ditch attempt to persuade voters to vote for their candidates.
The election candidates, however, are allowed to do door-to-door campaigning today.
The election campaign picked up a month ago, witnessing multiple terror attacks targeting election-related activities and candidates but political parties and assembly aspirants remained undeterred and continued with their canvassing to cultivate voters’ support.
By Monday night I had done 60 different jalsas in the most difficult times under serious terrorist threats – esp in Bannu and Karak – and in the hottest weather. I want to thank the hundreds of thousands of people who came to these jalsas. pic.twitter.com/f9eu1AIhBh
