ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) vice president Maryam Nawaz on Sunday has said that the government of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has to be sent packing.
The vice president of PML-N stated in a post on the social networking site Twitter that the current government is so afraid of PML-N that it arrests the leader in Gilgit-Baltistan before every rally.
The selected prime minister became nervous at a public meeting of the leader of the opposition in the Gilgit-Baltistan election, she added.
The reaction came as voting for the general elections of Gilgit-Baltistan Legislative Assembly (GBLA) is underway amid tight security and coronavirus pandemic threat.
As many as 330 candidates including four women are contesting the general elections in 23 constituencies of GB Assembly. Elections have been delayed in GBLA-3 following the death of PTI Gilgit-Baltistan President retired Justice Jaffer Shah from coronavirus.
At least 1,26,997 fresh voters are expected to poll their right of vote in general elections of Gilgit-Baltistan.
The British Electoral Commission has released a list of regionally wise voters, which shows that the total number of voters in the 2015 election was 618,364.
By 2020, the total number of registered voters is 745,361, which indicates that 126,997 new voters will vote for their candidate in the upcoming British general election.
