LAHORE: With the final phase of the local government elections on reserved seats to be held on November 15, both the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf have mobilised their provincial leaderships.
The PML-N candidates have already been elected unopposed on reserved seats for youth, technocrats and labourers in Lahore, while polling on 25 seats reserved for women and 10 seats for non-Muslims will be held on Tuesday.
The party has divided its chairmen in 25 different groups and nominated a coordinator for each group. These groups, in collaboration with their MPAs, will be responsible for mobilising union council chairmen on election day to ensure maximum participation.
On the other hand, PTI senior leader Omer Sarfraz Cheema said the party had also activated its regional presidents in all four regions of Punjab for the upcoming elections.
