ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has ordered re-election in two polling stations of PK-60 Battagram as women there were barred from voting on May 11, Express News reported on Tuesday.

It was earlier reported that political parties in the area had unofficially agreed to bar women from voting in the general elections.

The ECP received complaints against the agreement between the political parties and was asked to declare election results in the constituency as null and void.

The commission took notice of the incident and ordered re-polling.
