The federal government has temporarily stopped cellphone service in a few districts in Punjab and Balochistan during today’s election in an effort to preserve the fairness and security of the electoral process, as per ARY News.

The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) issued a statement stating that, under the Ministry of Interior’s directives, cellular service will be temporarily banned for two days during the by-elections in a few areas of the two provinces.
