ECP to decide exact date for next elections in Punjab: Sanaullah
Sanaullah said Election Commission of Pakistan would decide the time frame of the next elections.
ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) - Minister for Interior Rana Sanaullah on Thursday said the Supreme Court and Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) would decide the time frame of the next elections in Punjab.
Rana Sanaullah said the Punjab chief minister forwarded the summary to the Punjab governor for dissolving assemblies. The next elections would be conducted after the final decision of the ECP, he added.
After 48 hours, he said, the assemblies would automatically be dissolved in Punjab. "There is no need to have the consent of the governor for dissolving assemblies." The interim setup, he added, would ask the election commission to make necessary arrangements for the next elections in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhawa.
Talking about Dr Farooq Sattar and Mustafa Kamal joining the ranks of Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P), Sanaullah said that political parties have every right to make an alliance for their personal interest.
