After the Pakistan Peoples Party, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has also rejected the Election Commission’s constituency delimitation schedule in its entirety and announced its intention to challenge it in the Supreme Court.
Just yesterday, the Election Commission announced the constituency delimitation schedule, stating that general elections cannot be held within 90 days.
The Election Commission has decided to conduct constituency delimitations based on a new census nationwide and allocated a four-month period for the delimitation process.
According to the Election Commission, the final delimitation of constituencies will be announced on December 14th. Constituency delimitation will take place across the country from September 8th to October 7th. Recommendations regarding constituencies will be made from October to November 8th. The allocation of seats for national and provincial assemblies’ constituencies will be designated from September 5th to September 7th. Administrative matters related to constituencies will be completed by August 31st.
However, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has also completely rejected the Election Commission’s schedule for constituency delimitation.
In a statement issued by the PTI spokesperson, it has been said that the election commission’s schedule of constituencies is deviant from the constitution and based on malice, this schedule is a criminal attempt to prolong the caretaker government against the intention of the constitution.
Earlier, the PPP had openly opposed the delay of more than 90 days in the elections.
Faisal Karim Kundi, Information Secretary of People’s Party, says that if there are appeals against them after the constituencies, they will remain in the same cycles for one and a half years, so the elections should be held within 90 days.
