Pakistan People's Party (PPP) has clinched 9 seats only.

Elections started at eight am and polling ended at five pm. Counting is underway. 

1,560 candidates are contesting in 206 wards of 41 Cantonment boards.

Earlier, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has already published lists of all polling stations while polling staff has also been appointed.

Police would be deployed at polling stations, whereas Rangers would perform their duties outside the polling stations for ensuring smooth conduct of polling.

The Election Commission has also approved the installation of CCTV cameras in the most sensitive polling stations.

Presiding officers would announce the results immediately after completion of counting whereas Returning Officers would announce the unofficial results after completion of the results of each ward.

Over 1,300 candidates are in the run for 119 general seats in these cantonments, where about one million voters will cast their votes.

The residents of the cantonment areas will cast their votes to elect their civilian representatives on the cantonment boards.

The total number of registered voters in their respective constituencies is 466,695 of which 244,317 are males while 222,198 are female voters.

Both, Pakistan-Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) have fielded candidates for all (20) seats, while the banned organization Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) is running for 19 slots.

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.

Twitter tests edge-to-edge photos in timeline

The upcoming feature will expand visual media embedded in tweets to fill the whole width of a mobile phone's screen. The new layout is being tested on iOS but not on Android.

“The change is designed to make it easier for visual content to shine,” said twitter.

In the current test, tweets fill the full frame from left to right instead of being offset by a pretty large margin on the left.

The changes result in much larger images and videos that look better in the feed and a cleaner, more modern design that doesn’t unnecessarily squish tweets to the right of users’ profile pictures.

The test follows two previous image-focused changes— 4K image support and full-size images.

The 4K image support came in April and increased the resolution of images from 2048 x 2048 pixels to 3840 pixels on the long end.

While, full-size image support came in May and brought an end to cropped photos on timelines in iOS and Android.

The company, with the announcement that it is testing edge-to-edge photo support is increasing its chances of becoming an Instagram competitor.

The date for the rollout is not ascertain yet. However, users are already complaining about the change, despite the fact that it is still in its early stages.

This is because, there's no word, on when full-width tweets will arrive on some of the best Android phones.
