"Some 30,000 voters will be polling their votes on biometric machines", Dawn reported. Results are expected to be announced later in the day.

A total of 44 candidates, including cricket-turned- politician Imran Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf candidate Yasmin Rashid, are in the fray.

"She is under medical treatment and will undergo another surgery after few days", Nawaz told reporters in London where he is now residing with his sons.

"You took the brunt of the attack against Nawaz Sharif", she said, while hailing people of the constituency. His party has not lost the seat since it began contesting elections in 1985.

"My head goes towards PTI while my heart goes towards PML-N", said Ali Raza, 25, a bank employee.

Former Prime Minister Sharif had requested a review of the ruling that disqualified him from holding office for concealing his assets.

Over 321,786 voters registered in Lahore's densely populated constituency voted to elect their representative to the National Assembly.

Speaking to media, Khan said Nawaz Sharif attempted to pressure the apex court through political moves like GT Road Rally after he was ousted by the Supreme Court.

Neither party has a realistic prospect of winning, but both are likely to primarily draw supporters from the religious base of the PML-N.

Nisar recently said Maryum could not be accepted as party leader.

Nearby, a few PML-N workers rode by on motorcycles, raising the party's slogan, referencing their electoral symbol of a lion: "Look who's come, it's the lion, it's the lion!"

Right wing parties including Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) and Milli Muslim League (MML) also fielded their candidates.

JuD is considered by the U.S. and India to be a front for Lashkar-e-Taiba, the militant group blamed for the attack on India's financial capital, Mumbai, that killed more than 160 people. The activists of the JuD and its another front Falah-i- Insaniat (FIF), campaigned for their candidate Sheikh Yaqoob.

Saeed is subject to a United States bounty of $10m and has been named by both the U.S. and UN as a "terrorist". "That would be a victory for them", said Hasan Askri a political analyst.

"If you give them money, they actually do good work", says Muhammad Naseer, a first-time voter from the Islampura neighbourhood, who voted for the MML.
