ECP to complete delimitations of constituencies on Aug 3

ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) which had started making fresh demarcations of all National Assembly and provincial assemblies’ constituencies plans to finish the task by August 3, 2022.

The ECP said its statement that the delimitation process for national and provincial assemblies would continue until August 03. “The training process for the committees involved in the delimitation process is ongoing and al data has been obtained from concerned institutions,” the commission said.

The initial delimitation will be completed by May 24 and will be published by May 28, the statement said and added that appeals on it
could be filed between May 29 to June 28.

The ECP said that the appeals would be heard between July 1 to 30 and a final list of the delimitations will be published on August 03.

It is pertinent to mention here that recently the Supreme Court of Pakistan returned a plea from Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) against
delimitations from the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).

The registrar of the apex court returned the PTI plea after raising objections that the petitioner has not approached the concerned forum for
redressal of the issue.

The petition was directly filed in the Supreme Court despite having an opportunity to raise the matter at the concerned forum, the registrar said and further added that the petition also did not carry concerned certificates. TF REPORT
