Pakistan Presidential election Dates 2018

Pakistan Presidential election Date: 31 October 2018

General elections were held in Pakistan on 25 July 2018 to elect the members of the 15th National Assembly and to the four Provincial Assemblies of Pakistan. Most of the opinion polls suggested an overall Pakistan Muslim League (N) lead with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf being the close second. There have been allegations of pre-poll rigging being conducted by the judiciary, the military and the intelligence agencies to sway the election results in favour of the PTI and against the PML (N).

PTI Party leader Imran Khan leads in early unofficial exit poll results, as his opposition alleges large-scale vote rigging.

Electoral system of Pakistan

The 342 members of the National Assembly are elected by two methods in three categories; 272 are elected in single-member constituencies by first-past-the-post voting; 60 are reserved for females and 10 for ethnic and religious minority groups; both sets of reserved seats use proportional representation with a 5% electoral threshold. This proportional number, however, is based on the number of seats won rather than votes cast. To win a simple majority, a party would have to take 137 seats. For less distinguished and less fortunate people, who are interested in contesting election on any political party ticket, access to political leaders is very difficult.

General Elections 2018 was held under new delimitation of constituencies which was result of 2017 Census of Pakistan. As per the notification issued on 5 March 2018, the Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) will have three constituencies, Punjab 141, Sindh 61, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa 39, Balochistan 16 and Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) will have 12 constituencies in the National Assembly.10.6 crore people are registered to vote for members of the National Assembly of Pakistan and four provincial Assemblies.
