The moment they do, people here and elsewhere will say they are rigging elections and we will get suspicious grainy footage recorded on Nokia 6230 showing men in uniform casting ballots and certain people will then run with it.
Doesn't matter.. They shd do their duty. If we same apply to judges or Drs that a judge shouldn't give a just verdict as police/EC will not implement.
Or Dr should not commence treating as there is a high probability that a patient would die.
but they will probably provide some security
They should and mainly border and check post or polling security. Now, if rigging is involved then the public should act and army should just then prevent goons from harming public.
since this is a dysfunctional banana republic where police only exists for VIP protection
Police/Ranger/Jawans mainly do VIP duties besides their normal duty. The ratio for police is perhaps higher.

It's not the responsibility of the Army to be ensuring elections are free and fair. That's the role of the civil administration, including police/rangers, judges, electoral commision.

People in this country involve the army in everything, then cry when they get power hungry and take direct control.

Who's stopping the civllian goverments from ensuring the police etc are properly trained and equipped to deal with internal securitiy issues? Who controls the police budget? Who appoints favourites in different policing roles as soon as they get elected MPA or MNA?

As I said, there's only so much you can blame the army for when the whole country is rotten to the core.

Are the police going to provide security. PTI needs to mobilize thousands of poll watchers with cameras to stand outside (at a respectable distance so as not seen to be interfering) polls, as well as silent observers inside each polling place, to catch if anyone if coming to rig the election. PTI also needs to mobilize its supporters to request foreign/international organization/UN observers at the polls.

Rigging and security threats need to be anticipated and planned for in both KPK and Punjab. KPK police (considering what happened to them) will be motivated to make sure elections will be fair and happen safely, but it’s Punjab the PTI has to anticipate the mostly likely chance of problems.

Sure.

Yup.

Army stops.
Civilians should take back responsibility but still army meddles in affairs. Be it in judiciary, police, politicians, media, etc.
The other structure is kept weak both by politicians and army. So that they can be arm twisted when needed.
Same happens in a dictatorship. Institutes become hollow and subjugated.

Are the police, in practice, loyal to the country or the party ruling the province?

To the party and $$$

It's an overall heavily corrupt society that doesn't use its brain, only solution is mass education in a proper national curriculum.

And severe punishments against the corrupt/nepotistic kind. It is genuinely the only way to revive this country.
