Tank city is inhabited by the Bittani, Marwat, Jat, Kundi, Mahsud and Burki tribes. The last two are natives of the neighboring South Waziristan agency but have now settled here. The bulk of the constituency’s votes are divided among the residents of city, the Bittani-dominated villages, the Jattatar and Kundi areas, and the tribesmen of South Waziristan.

However, the tribesmen-dominated villages ensured the victory of Fazlur Rehman and his brother Moulana Ataur Rehman.
