The high court directed the ECP counsel to provide relevant documents with the written response. Later, the hearing was adjourned till December 24.

Earlier in September, the counsel of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) had apprised the Sindh High Court (SHC) that the actions of the Sindh government were causing delays in organising the local government (LG) polls.

The ECP counsel had said that the Sindh government’s actions were causing delays in LG polls. The lawyer added that the provincial government wanted to complete legislation for amendments in LG laws.

The election commission had also submitted the records of contacts with the Sindh government before the high court and sought time to submit the final reply.
