In Lahore, 257 candidates are contesting for 20 wards in the two cantonments. The ECP has declared 40 and 237 polling stations as extremely sensitive in these cantonments.

In addition, keeping the sensitivity of the highly charged elections seen as the litmus test of the political power of several parties, the head of Clifton Cantonment Board (CBC) has barred members of national and provincial assemblies from visiting.

In an official letter, the CBC said that the ECP is trying to hold elections in accordance with the code of conduct.
