LANDI KOTAL: The Mulla Gori and Zakha Khel tribes in Khyber Agency at a public meeting in Mulla Gori Sherbridge on Friday announced that their women would not be allowed to vote. Tribal elders warned the Election Commission not to set up polling stations for women in their areas, saying they would shut them down. They also warned women not to violate their decision, threatening action in line with tribal traditions.
Meanwhile, around 200 baton-wielding Khuga Khel Shinwari tribe women blocked the Pak-Afghan road at Charwazgai to protest against extensive power outages.
