Election campaign for the local body elections ended last night at 12 o  clock.

Chairman PTI Imran Khan has said that he is sure elections will be held in 2015 and his party will turn out to be the winner.

Candidates were awarded weird symbols in the local body elections by the ECP. One of the candidates, a taylor by profession, got a car steering as his symbol.

Media was tortured by the teachers in a Peshawar school when they tried to show how the teachers were being trained for the election. Even a female reported of Dunya News was abused by the school administration. However, they apologized later upon government intervention.

All the political parties contesting the by-election in Lower Dir a few days back had agreed on barring the women from voting. However, women played a proactive role in the local body elections  campaign.

KP government is also facing problems in providing enough police officers for conducting the election.

Old ways continue: Peshawar police was found hunting for the cars throughout the city so that they could be used for the election.
