Prominent political figure Mohsin Dawar, contesting for NA-40, has raised serious concerns about the security situation in Tappi, North Waziristan.
Dawar alleges that Taliban forces have taken control of multiple polling stations in the NA-40 constituency, posing a threat to the electoral process.
In a letter to the Chief Election Commissioner (CEC), Dawar urged the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to address the alarming security situation promptly, expressing dismay that his previous warnings had been ignored.
The reported attacks on female polling agents further highlight the tense conditions in Tappi, with Dawar emphasizing the persistent security challenges in the region.
These allegations shed light on the difficulties faced by electoral authorities in ensuring a transparent process in areas affected by security concerns, raising questions about the effectiveness of security measures and the commitment to democratic principles.
