The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has given instructions to the DROs, ROs, and security officials to maintain vigilance, and it has instructed that work on the results should begin as soon as polling time ends.
In addition to this, the country’s highest election authority has been instructed to distribute copies of the results to the polling agents who worked the election.
