As many as 44 candidates including 32 independent and 12 ticket holders of different political parties are taking part in the bye-election, said an official of the ECP.

The polling for by-election in Lahore's NA-120 constituency has begun at 8am and will continue till 5pm amid stringent security measures.

"Some 30,000 voters will be polling their votes on biometric machines", Dawn reported.

A key feature of this election is that for the first time in the election history, biometric voting is being employed.

Although over two dozen candidates are in the running, it is believed that the main contest is between Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf's Dr Yasmin Rashid and PML-N's Kulsoom Nawaz.
