Separate polling stations for women demanded in Shangla
Description
Political leaders and local residents of Shangla have demanded separate polling station to be set up for females along with female only staff to be present for by-polls in PK-23 (Shangla I) constituency.

Previously, the results of Shangla had been termed as "void" because of less than ten percent women voter turnout. PTI's Shaukat Yousafzai was the winner as a result of the elections. As a result, ECP had reordered elections in the area.

It was further ascertained that the local leaders must not bar women from casting their votes.
