Opposition parties insist on immediate election


The opposition parties in Sindh insisted on holding local bodies’ elections in Karachi immediately and accused the ruling parties, both in the province and at the Centre, of deliberately delaying the democratic process only for their own vested political interests.

They accused the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) of conniving with the ruling parties that led to time and again postponement of the local bodies’ elections in Karachi only to save themselves from a certain defeat.

The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf came out with a strong reaction against the ECP’s decision to put off the polls for a third time and also tabled a resolution in Sindh Assembly. The PTI asked the ECP chief through the resolution to step down for failing to fulfil his constitutional responsibility.

The PTI Parliamentary Leader in the Sindh Assembly, Khurrum Sher Zaman, submitted the resolution to the secretary of the Sindh Assembly condemning the delay in the local government elections in Karachi.
