Peshawar: Doctors from the tribal belt have demanded of Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) to set up polling stations at all agency headquarters’ hospitals for the forthcoming elections of its council’s members. The polls are scheduled to be held on Dec 5.

This was stated by Dr Khyal Rehman Afridi, a candidate for the general seat of Fata Friends Forum (FFF) at a press conference held at Peshawar Press Club.

“Polling stations have been set up in settled areas,” he said. “This will not allow a majority of doctors to cast their votes.” Afridi added, “We urge PMDC to establish polling stations at all agency headquarters’ hospitals to ensure all doctors can vote without facing any difficulties.” He also appealed to doctors to cast their vote to select members of the council. “We chose FFF as a platform to launch our campaign as it is an apolitical forum,” he added.
