General Elections in Pakistan: Extensive Participation of Women

Bayan News – The people of Pakistan went to the polls in the early hours of this morning, Friday (February 8th), for the country’s general elections.

Pakistani media have reported that the participation of women in these elections has been significant.

It has also been reported that Pakistani authorities have unusually suspended mobile phone and internet services on the day of the elections due to deteriorating security conditions.

According to reports, in the city of Quetta in Balochistan, a province that witnessed deadly attacks by extremists prior to the elections, some polling stations are largely vacant due to security threats and harsh weather conditions.

Nawaz Sharif, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, and Imran Khan are competing seriously in these elections.

Nawaz Sharif, who served as Prime Minister three times in the past, has returned to the competition after being disqualified from the elections five years ago and is facing Imran Khan, who is currently in prison.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, a 35-year-old candidate from the Pakistan People’s Party, aims to become the youngest Prime Minister of the country with a serious competition.
