Polling for Karachi’s six cantonment boards began Sunday, September 12.

People can vote for their representatives from 8am to 5pm without any interruptions. According to Regional Election Commissioner Nadeem Haider, a fool-proof security plan has been chalked. “The polling areas in Karachi will be exempted from load-shedding on Saturday and Sunday to ensure the smooth flow of voting,” he said.

All candidates were instructed to end electioneering and canvassing by Friday midnight.

The six cantonment boards in Karachi include Cantonment Board Clifton (CBC), Cantonment Board Faisal (CBF), Cantonment Board Manora, Cantonment Board Malir, Cantonment Board Korangi and Cantonment Board Karachi.

There are a total of 42 wards in the six cantonment boards in Karachi where as many as 350 candidates will be taking part in these elections. Of the total, 240 candidates represent various political parties, while 110 others, including nine women, are running as independent candidates.

Other cantonments to elect representatives today includes Rawalpindi, Chaklala, Wah, Texila, Murree, Attock, Kamra, Jhelum, Mangla, Sargodha, Shorkot, Gujranwala, Kharian, Sialkot, Lahore, Walton, Okara, Multan, Bahawalpur, Pano Aqil, Hyderabad, Peshawar Cantt, Cherat, Risalpur, Mardan, Kohat, Bannu, D. I. Khan, Abbottabad, Murree Gallies, Havelian, Quetta, Zhob, and Loralai, according to a notification issued by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).

Some of the wards are hotly contests. The Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) had requested the ECP to deploy the army inside and outside the polling stations. The ECP, nevertheless, rejected the demand.

However, police and Rangers personnel have been deployed at all polling stations, and additional security has been announced for the “sensitive polling stations.”

How cantonment boards function

Political parties are contesting cantonment boards’ elections to get their vice-president elected at each cantonment board.

The vice-presidents of all cantonment boards are responsible for municipal issues in their respective areas.

In total, there are six vice-presidents.

The candidates are elected to the post of vice-president on the basis of majority in the cantonment board elections.

The vice-president works under the president of the cantonment board, who is a serving officer of armed forces at the Brigadier level. A CSS officer is appointed as the chief executive officer in all cantonment boards, who acts as the secretary of the board, besides running administrative affairs and acting as a bridge between elected members and army officers.

The cantonment boards’ elections in Hyderabad and Pano Aqil cantonment boards would also be held on Sunday.
