NAWABSHAH: Bakhtawar Bhutto-Zardari cast her first vote in Nawabshah on Wednesday amid tight security.
Accompanied by her younger sister Aseefa Bhutto-Zardari and aunts Dr Azra Fazal Pechuho and Fauzia Zardari, she reached Ward No2, polling station No8 established in the government primary school in LBOD Colony, 500 metres from Zardari House, in a long motorcade and cast her vote amid tight security.
Her vote number was 376 registered on the voters’ list at the polling station where PPP’s Ghulam Shabbir Zardari was contesting against JUI-F’s Zulfiqar Magsi.
Ms Bhutto-Zardari, the elder daughter of Benazir Bhutto, had her vote registered here in NA-213 in September 2013.
The constituency was a stronghold of the PPP and her aunt and sister of former president Asif Ali Zardari, Dr Azra Fazal Pechuho, was thrice elected MNA from there in 2002, 2008 and 2013 general elections.
