The meeting was part of the ECP’s ongoing consultation with the political parties for the elections and in this regard the ECP had already hold meetings with all the major political parties, PMLN, PTI, JUIF and other parties.

Last Friday, while addressing the press conference in Karachi after the meeting of the CEC, PPP Parliamentarians Vice President Senator Sherry Rehman had stated that a delegation of the party will go to the ECP on August 29 and place the party’s position before the ECP.

She hinted that the future course of action will be made in the light of the reply received from the Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) and will formulate the party policy.

In that presser in Karachi on Friday, Senator Sherry Rehman had stated that the PPP has serious reservations about the digital census, adding that elections cannot be delayed on the basis of delimitation of constituencies as numbers of seats remain unchanged in provinces according to the census.

While PPP’s Secretary General Syed Nayyar Hussain Bokhari had stated that the constitution of Pakistan clearly mentioned that the elections be held within 90 days with the dissolution of assemblies and it means elections within 90 days.
