Election campaigns hijacked by TTP
Description
Islamabad: Rallies and public speeches by party leaders are not happening with the same frequency and enthusiasm like the last election due to repeated threats by Tehreek-e-Taliban.

Leaders of the Awami National Party (ANP), Pakistan People’s party (PPP) and Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) agreed that the potential threats would automatically affect the outcome of the elections.

ANP announced to avoid huge gatherings and instead carry out a door-to-door campaign while the PPP launched a constituency-based campaign. MQM, however, decided to continue its public meetings but demanded foolproof security to avert any potential threats from the TTP, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi and other extremist groups.
