Description
MARDAN: In the PK-27 provincial constituency of Mardan, the turnout at the women’s polling stations had been unusually low all day. There had been rumours circulating in the area of the existence of an agreement between all contesting candidates in the constituency under which women voters will be actively discouraged from voting. Although, evidence of this agreement has not yet come to light, its effects can be seen all over the constituency.
