Voting at some polling stations in Daska was halted after two people were killed and seven injured in a firing incident.

A press release issued by the commission said that the Punjab IG, commissioner, and deputy commissioner were contacted last night when the 20 presiding officers couldn’t be reached. The commissioner assured the ECP that the results will be shared soon but then he became unavailable too. The ECP had set up 360 polling stations in the constituency. According to the results of 337 stations, PML-N’s Nosheen Ifthikhar was leading with 97,588 votes, while PTI’s Ali Asjad received 94,541 votes. Maryam, referring to the ECP’s statement, said she was “pleased” to see the ECP taking stand against “rigging”. She claimed that the results of 337 polling stations revealed that there was a turnout of 30 35 percent but the turnout in other 20 polling stations was 85 to 90 percent.
