March 01, 1985

The second step in President Zia ul-Haq's plan to transfer power from military rule to elected civilian government took place as voters chose legislative assemblies in Pakistan's four provinces. Election commission sources said the turnout was heavy, but final results were not immediately known. More than 3,850 candidates had planned to contest 483 seats. Police reported scattered incidences of violence during the polling, including the slaying of one candidate in Dadu, in the southern Sind province.
