The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) claims it has all the necessary resources to organize general elections following Pakistani law.
In response to politicians’ statements, the commission stated that the ECP is well aware of its constitutional and legal obligations, which it is carrying out following previous practice.
It urged political leaders to refrain from making false criticisms of the ECP and assured them that the ECP is completely dedicated to carrying out its legal responsibilities as outlined in the country’s constitution.
The President’s Secretariat had requested the ECP to recommend dates for the next general elections, which will be held within 90 days of the National Assembly’s dissolution, according to the President’s House on April 6.
The President House said in a statement.”In a letter dated April 5, 2022, addressed to ECP, the President’s Secretariat requested that ECP propose a date(s) for holding general elections within 90 days of the National Assembly’s dissolution, i.e., April 3, 2022, per the provisions of Pakistan’s Constitution,”
