ECP announced General Elections date and schedule

General elections in Pakistan have been scheduled for February 11, as confirmed by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) during a session at the Supreme Court. The counsel representing the electoral body, Sajeel Swati, revealed that the process of delineating constituencies would be finalized by January 29, setting the stage for the impending polls.

This development came to light as the apex court resumed its proceedings, addressing a series of petitions advocating for elections to be held within 90 days following the dissolution of the National Assembly and provincial legislatures.

A three-judge bench presided over these proceedings, with Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Qazi Faez Isa, Justice Amin-ud-Din Khan, and Justice Athar Minallah overseeing the case.

The petitions in question had been submitted by the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA), the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Munir Ahmad, and Ibad-ur-Rehman.

In the prior hearing, the court had issued notices to both the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) and the federal government, seeking their input regarding the feasibility of holding elections within the stipulated 90-day timeframe.
