Polling suspended in NA-123 after scuffle between PTI, PML-N workers
LAHORE - The polling process in the National Assembly constituency 123 from Punjab's capital city was suspended after workers from Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf clashed.

The skirmish broke out as the workers were stationed outside the polling station for the 11th general elections of the country following which the process was put to a halt.

NA-123 is a charged constituency of Lahore with renowned political figures in the run including Meher Wajid Azeem of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, Muhammad Malik Riaz of Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz and Chaudhry Zahid Malik from Pakistan Peoples Party Parliamentarian.

In the ongoing elections, as many as 105.96 million people, including 47 million female voters, will be able to use their right to vote from 8 am till 6 pm without any formal break, with over 1,2000 candidates vying for 270 national and 570 provincial assembly seats. Twenty-three percent of the total voters would be taking part in the exercise for the first time.

It is common practice in the rural areas of Pakistan where female voters are denied their right; however, the turnover of women voters in urban areas remained comparatively satisfactory in the previous elections.
