In a statement, the ECP said today that neither has a date been fixed for the upcoming polls nor is any particular date being considered.

The ECP termed all such news reports as baseless.

Earliet it was reported on Tuesday that ECP officials have been pondering over July 25 or 26 (Wednesday or Thursday) as tentative dates for the polls.

The commission has started working on the summary for elections date, sources said, which would be forwarded to the president.
