The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has informed the Supreme Court that elections will be held on February 11. The court is hearing petitions from the Supreme Court Bar Association and others, who are seeking directives for holding general elections within 90 days as mandated by the Constitution. The process of delimiting the constituencies will be completed by January 29. The Chief Justice of Pakistan has instructed the ECP to consult with President Arif Alvi and present a final election date on Friday. Previously, the ECP had scheduled elections in Punjab on April 30, but they were later postponed to October 8 for both Punjab and KPK. The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party had challenged this decision in the Supreme Court. In April, the court had ordered the government and the ECP to hold elections for the Punjab assembly on May 14, but this was not possible due to a lack of resources. The ECP announced in September that general elections would take place in the last week of January 2024, without specifying a date. The preliminary constituency lists have already been published, with objections being accepted until October 26. The final electoral rolls will be released by November 30.
