The secretary of Election Commission of Pakistan, Kanwar Muhammad Dilshad, said that extra security personnel would be deployed at sensitive polling stations, the Associated Press of Pakistan reported on Thursday.

Kanwar Dilshad, who visited Balochistan province Tuesday, said the Provincial Home Secretary in a meeting briefed him about the law and order situation there and declared about 1,160 polling booths as "very sensitive".

It did not mean that there would be no polling on the election day, but it meant deployment of extra security personnel at the locations, Kanwar Dilshad said.

He stated that it was a routine and traditional exercise of law enforcement agencies to do home work for the elections aimed at ensuring smooth and peaceful conduct of the polls.

He said that other provinces would also submit their reports in this regard by Dec. 24 to 25.

About 2,000 foreign observers would reach the country soon to monitor the upcoming general elections scheduled on Jan. 8, 2008.
