LAHORE: All is set to hold bye-election at the National Assembly constituency NA-120 Lahore-III today.
A tough contest is expected between PTI candidate Yasmin Rashid and Nawaz's wife and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N)'s Kulsoom Nawaz on September 17.
The polling for by-election in Lahore's NA-120 constituency has begun at 8am and will continue till 5pm amid stringent security measures.
The Election Commission of Pakistan has for the first time introduced biometric voting on trial basis at 39 polling stations.
More than 1,500 army personnel, 7,000 police officials and 586 traffic wardens have been deployed for the by-election.
The PTI chairman said that Maryam Nawaz is running the media cell of her party.
State Minister for Interior Affairs Talal Chaudhry, Senator Pervez Rasheed, MNAs Shaista Pervaiz Malik, Maiza Hameed and Rukhsana Kokab, and MPA Saiful Malook Khokhar were served notices for campaigning for PML-N candidate Kulsoom Nawaz in violation of the code. Faisal Mir of the PPP has worked hard and is set to hugely improve upon the party tally in this election from May 2013 general polls when its candidate Zuber Kardar could secure only 2604 votes.
Rashid says her contest is not against Kulsoom but the federal and provincial governments of the PML-N and the Sharif family.
Surprisingly, no candidate of three leading parties has their vote registered in the constituency NA-120 for which they are contesting.
