Orderly and Peaceful Cantonment Boards LG Elections Register Low Turnout, Fewer Women Candidates & Electoral Irregularities

ISLAMABAD, September 16, 2021: Around one-third of the registered voters in Pakistan’s cantonment boards went to vote on September 12, 2021 in an election that remained largely peaceful, orderly and free of controversy in an otherwise competitive but highly fragmented political environment. The acceptability of election outcome by all major political contenders without any major reservations is a positive first that will help strengthen democratic traditions in the country.
