Government school teachers of eleven Balochistan districts have refused to perform duties on May 11 elections due to security threats.

The Balochistan government teachers association has said that banned organisations have threatened to target the staff performing duties at polling centres therefore they could not put their lives at stake by rendering their services.

They said Makran, Qalat, Khuzdar, Chaghi and Noshki districts were security risk areas and security arrangements for polling staff were unsatisfactory.

The teachers claimed that they were repeatedly receiving threats from militants for staying away of the electoral process otherwise they would have to face dire consequences.
