A tough competition is expected between Pakistan Peoples Party candidate Haji Muhammad Dada and Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam’s Maulana Gul Hassan.

Meanwhile, 1,671 policemen and 395 Rangers personnel have been deployed at polling stations in the constituency to maintain law and order. In addition, polling agents and staff members have been barred from using cell phones inside the polling stations.
