Two constituency votes to be termed "void" after low female turnout

Description
After low turnout of female voters in polls of NA-10 (Shangla) and NA-48 (North Waziristan), the ECP has decided to cancel the results and term them as "void" for failing to record 10% female voter turnout as per the rules.

ECP had previously announced that a 10% female representative voter bank must be a condition so as to make the votes in the constituencies count.

According to the report, the constituency NA-10 (Shangla) had 7.8% female voter turnout and NA-48 (North Waziristan) had 8.19%.

Previously, various assumptions were attached with the low women voter turnout at Shangla. The reasons were mostly attributed to the lack of presence of women-only polling stations with women staff on duty. According to different reports, the women in Shangla were barred from voting by their locals based on this reason.
