He said in the past, women had not utilised their right to vote due to non-availability of amenities and other problems in the province.
“The government and the Election Commission of Pakistan have made all arrangements for peaceful conduct of general election,” he added.

The minister also urged all segments of society to play their role in increasing women voters in order to use their right to vote in selection of their candidates as they constitute over 50 per cent of the total population.
