Election Commission announces to hold local bodies polls in Punjab in April

ISLAMABAD – The Election Commission of Pakistan on Monday announced to hold local government polls in Punjab in the last week of April 2023.

Provincial Election Commissioner Punjab Saeed Gul Mohmand reiterated the need to hold local bodies polls in the coming spring in a presser, accusing provincial authorities to use tactics in desperate bid to push elections.

The Punjab election commission called the delimitation authority of the electoral body, saying these constituencies have been made under the Local Government Act passed by the Punjab government, advising critics to approach the relevant forum.

He mentioned ongoing propaganda against the electoral watchdog from PTI led provincial government and hinted at no more delay in local government elections.
