Election Commission of Pakistan has decided to give deadlines to the provincial governments to hold local bodies elections using its constitutional and legal authority.
The sources said that the decision by the Election Commission came in the backdrop of lack of cooperation from the provincial governments with respect to holding local bodies’ elections.

“The ECP would give a deadline to the provinces to hold elections after provincial governments are not cooperating with it on the matter,” they said adding that the commission had already heard arguments from Sindh, Balochistan, and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provinces in various meetings it had held in this regard.
