    There should be re-polling in all constituencies of Karachi and Hyderabad. Army should be deployed at all polling stations.

    There are lot of polling stations in Karachi and Hyderabad where turn out is more than 90%. How is it possible. I think this evidence is enough for ECP. Elections should be again held on all seats of Karachi and Hyderabad.

    Army should take the responsibility for free and fair elections in Karachi. ECP should make all the necessary arrangements for re-election on all seats of Karachi and Hyderabad.
