The resolution was condemned by politicians and lawyers, who asserted that polls should be held on time. Independent Senator Hidayatullah also submitted a resolution seeking a delay in polls, citing surge in acts of terrorism and violence in the country. Today, a third resolution demanding a delay in polls was submitted to the Senate, citing the cold weather and increasing incidents of terrorism in KP as reasons for delaying polls. It stated that the cold weather and security concerns were not providing a conducive environment for citizens to cast their votes and were creating challenges for candidates trying to campaign. The resolution urged the ECP to delay polls to a date which was acceptable for all the relevant stakeholders and that would also help in removing hurdles in the way of free and fair elections.
