GILGIT-BALTISTAN: Army troops were deployed across all districts in Gilgit-Baltistan (GB) on Saturday, ahead of the legislative assembly elections in the region. 

According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), requisition for the purpose was given by the Election Commission of Pakistan and civil administration.

The polls for the GB Assembly are set to be held on June 8, however, there is widespread concern for the law and order situation across polling stations in the region.

Just yesterday, a petition was filed in the Islamabad High Court seeking the suspension of the June 8 elections for the G-B Legislative Assembly (GBLA).

The petition was filed by All Pakistan Muslim League chief coordinator Ahmed Raza Khan Kasuri on Thursday requesting the court to declare the notification for holding GBLA elections unlawful.

He further maintained that the notification issued under the provision of impugned statutory regulatory order (SROs) and executive orders were violation of the Supreme Court orders.
