GWADAR: Amid tight security, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has completed all arrangements for holding the by-election on Balochistan Assembly’s seat PB-47 in Kech district, which will be held on Thursday (today).
The seat had fallen vacant after the ECP declared the result of July 25 election null and void after opponents challenged election of winner Mir Rauf Rind of the Balochistan Awami Party (BAP), who is a dual national.
An official of ECP Balochistan said that the election material had been distributed to the staff in Kech district. “Election material to Dasht and Mand areas was distributed on Tuesday while ballot papers, boxes and other material for city areas have been dispatched,” the official said.
More than 56,472 registered voters —31,417 male and 25,055 female — will cast their vote for the PB-47 seat.
