ECP Files Plea Against IHC Order for LG polls in Islamabad

ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Saturday filed an intra-court appeal in the Islamabad High Court (IHC) against the verdict of its single-member bench for holding local government elections in the capital city on Dec 31.

The top election body has made the Jamat-e-Islami and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leaders respondents in the case.

On Friday, the IHC ordered the ECP to conduct the LG election as per the schedule. Justice Arbab Muhammad Tahir issued the orders while hearing petition of the PTI and JI against the election body’s verdict to delay the polls “for the time being” due to government’s decision to increase the number of union councils (UCs).
