The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) held meetings with the Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) and the PML-Q to discuss the roadmap for upcoming elections. The ECP assured that arrangements were complete and that the election campaigns and expenses would be closely monitored. The army, police, and other law enforcement agencies would be involved to ensure peaceful elections.
The PML-Q supported the ECP’s decision on delimitation of constituencies before the elections to ensure fairness. The TLP leaders expressed concerns about the government’s handling of local government elections and suggested empowering union councils for better governance. They also proposed improvements in election monitoring for transparency. Both parties showed confidence in the ECP’s commitment to transparent elections.
The chief election commissioner emphasized that the ECP is bound to conduct polls as per the local government laws. He acknowledged government interventions in local government polls, such as changing the laws after the ECP has made arrangements. He assured that the ECP is working to remove deceased and duplicate voters from electoral rolls and welcomed feedback from political parties on the election code.
Former Senate chairman and PPP leader Mian Raza Rabbani criticized diplomats for individually meeting the chief election commissioner during the election period and for making statements on the timing and transparency of elections.
Overall, the ECP aims to ensure fair and transparent elections, with consultations and involvement of political parties and law enforcement agencies.
