GUJRANWALA (Staff Reporter) – Polling is in progress for by-election in NA-101 Gujranwala-VII.

Pak Army troops have been deployed in and outside sensitive polling stations to avoid any untoward incident.

The PML-N has fielded Justice(R) Iftikhar Ahmed Cheema as its candidate against PTI’s Muhammad Ahmed Chatta.

According to Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), as many as 262 polling stations; including 43 for male, 43 for female and 176 combined; have been established in the constituency.

The seat fell vacant when Supreme Court of Pakistan declared election of Iftikhar Ahmed Cheema as null and void for not disclosing his assets.
