ECP likely to hold Islamabad LG polls this week


The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) is likely to hold Islamabad local government (LG) polls this week, citing sources. The election commission issued orders to the concerned returning officers (ROs) to start transportation of polling material on an emergency basis.

Sources in ECP said the new date of the Islamabad local government polls will be announced at the earliest.

On Saturday, the federal government filed an intra-court appeal in Islamabad High Court (IHC) against holding Islamabad local government polls.INP
