Al Jazeera team barred from entering polling station

Pakistan Press Foundation

Police officials deployed at a polling station in Lahore barred an Al Jazeera team from entering citing orders from “top management” to not allow any media teams inside the premises.

Amid widespread concerns over rigging and manipulation, the Election Commission of Pakistan has issued special passes for observers and journalists granting them permission to “visit polling stations and offices to observe polling and consolidation of results”.

Voters are strictly barred from taking mobile phones inside.
