PTI seeks implementation of Punjab polls verdict


Apprises SC of talks with PDM

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Wednesday submitted a report to the Supreme Court on negotiations with the Pakistan Democratic Movement-led government, requesting the top court to ensure implementation on its April 4 judgement regarding holding elections to the Punjab Assembly on May 14.

In the report, the PTI apprised the apex court of progress on negotiations, saying it held three rounds of talks with the team of ruling PDM, an alliance of 13 political parties, in line with the commitment made to the top court in the Punjab elections delay case.

During the negotiations, both sides agreed to hold elections on the same day across the country but failed to evolve consensus on the date of the polls, it added.

In the report, the PTI further said it has set some conditions for holding elections simultaneously across the country which included the dissolution of the National Assembly and the provincial assemblies of Sindh and Balochistan on or before May 14.
