The threat of Taliban attacks hangs over Pakistan's historic election, but not in some parts of the financial capital Karachi, where the militants hold sway after chasing secular parties away.
A little over six months ago, what should have been the headquarters of the Awami National Party (ANP), an ally of the outgoing government, in the working class district of Sohrab Goth were abandoned.
"A small group of Taliban came to the ANP office and told them to leave quickly. They didn't even have to force them," a neighbour said.
