Polling underway for PB-50 Kech-III by-elections
KECH (Staff Report) - A day-long polling process is underway for by-elections in Balochistan Assembly constituency PB-50 Kech-III.

The polling began at 8:00am and will continue till 5:00pm without any formal break.

The Supreme Court had ordered to hold re-election in PB-50 due to the disqualification of PML-N's Akbar Askani.

Strict security arrangements have been made for peaceful polling process as Frontier Constabulary's search operation is underway in Turbat despite by-elections.

Akbar Askani is once again contesting the polls on ticket of PML-N while National Party's Mohammad Akram Dashti, Mohammad Ali Rind of Balochistan National Party (Awami) and Qasim Baloch from Balochistan National Party (Mengal) are also in the race.

It is also pertinent to be mentioned here that the constituency has as many as 59097 registered voters. However in 2013 general elections only 6.7% of voters cast their votes, making the constituency one with lowest turn out in the country.
