Islamabad [Pakistan] : Pakistan's caretaker Prime Minister Justice (retired) Nasir-ul-Mulk on Wednesday exercised his franchise at a polling booth in Mingora, Swat.

After voting, Mulk returned to Islamabad.

Meanwhile, Pakistan's Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa and his wife cast their votes at a polling booth in Rawalpindi, said Director-General of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor.

He posted a video of General Bajwa and his wife casting their votes and getting their thumbs inked in his Twitter handle.

"COAS & his Mrs cast vote at Rwp. We are target of inimical forces working against Pak. We've come a long way in our comprehensive national effort to fail them. We are united & steadfast to defeat them, and 'TODAY' through our 'VOTES'. Please come out & vote undeterred", COAS."

There are widespread allegations that the military forces are swaying the electoral results in favour of Imran Khan-led Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party. However, the Army has rejected such allegations.

Polling started at 8 am today and, as of now, will conclude at 6 pm.

As many as 12,570 candidates are contesting for 272 national and 577 provincial assembly seats.
