Pakistan goes to polls; 35 killed in suicide blast, poll-related violence

Pakistanis voted today in a tense election to choose a new government as at least 35 people were killed in an ISIS suicide attack and poll-related violence. 

The polling for country's 11th general election was held amidst charges of manipulation by the powerful Army and concerns over the participation of Islamic hardliners.

Hours after polling began for the general elections, an Islamic State suicide bomber blew himself up outside a polling station in Bhosa Mandi area of Balochistan's provincial capital, Quetta, killing 31 people, including policemen. In separate incidents, four persons were killed in poll-related violence. 

The voting started at 8 AM local time on more than 85,000 polling stations and ended at 6 PM. 

Voting was held for members of the lower house of parliament and four provincial assemblies. 

The counting of votes began after the conclusion of the polling process this evening and results will be announced within 24 hours.

The main contest is between three main players, Shahbaz Sharif-led PML-N, cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and Pakistan People's Party of Bilawal Bhutto.
