voting starts for na 240 korangi in karachi

KARACHI: Voting for the NA-240 constituency in the Sindh capital has begun, and voting will continue until 5 p.m. today.

According to reports, people came out of their homes to vote for their favorite candidate in the NA-240 by-election. Polling began at 8 a.m. today and will continue until the evening. In the National Assembly constituency, 309 polling stations have been set up.

A total of 529,855 people in the NA-240 constituency will vote to elect their candidate of choice to the National Assembly. 

Out of 309 polling stations, 106 have been marked as sensitive, while 203 have been declared as highly sensitive, needing tight security.

The Muttahida Qaumi Movement (Pakistan), the PSP, and the PPP will compete in the NA-240 by-elections, while the former ruling party, the PTI, has decided to opt out. The NA-240 seat became available following the death of United Leader Iqbal Muhammad Ali.

It should be noted that the NA-240 constituency of the National Assembly includes various parts of Karachi’s Korangi and Landhi industrial areas. The constituency has approximately 235,000 registered female voters and approximately 294,000 registered male voters.

The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) set the date for the by-elections in the constituency on Wednesday, while residents of Landhi and Korangi work in different factories and offices, presumably resulting in a lower voting turnout. Increased police personnel is already deployed for security protocols at the most sensitive police stations.
