CHAKWAL: Polling for by-elections in PP-20 Chakwal will be held on today.

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and PML-N are said to be in close contest for the constituency. The PML-N has fielded Ch Haider Sultan, son of the deceased MPA, while the PTI has awarded its ticket to Raja Tariq Afzal Kallas.
Nasir Minhas, candidate of Tehreek-e-Labbaik Ya Rasulallah, is also in the run. Two other candidates, M Tufail, independent, and ANP candidate Imran Qaisar are also among the contestants.
Pakistan Army personnel will be deployed inside and outside at all the polling stations of the PP-20, Peshawar-IV by-election.
