The bomb was hidden in a motorcycle parked in a shopping area near the offices of the local candidates.
The attack has been claimed but, as a commander of the insurgents, the head of the Pakistani Taliban TTP, Hakimullah Mehsud has ordered run multiple suicide bombings on election day.
Also, today in the city of Quetta, west of the country, a car bomb explosion near an office of Pakistan People's Party (PPP) has caused at least five wounded and numerous property damage.
