General elections may not be possible before May 2023, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) indicated on Tuesday.

It says the census and delimitation must be conducted before the country could go to polls.

Accoridng to a press release issued by the ECP's Media Coordination and Outreach Wing, the commission said it had received a letter from the Pakistan Bureau of Statistics (PBS) on April 18 stating that the seventh population and housing census would be initiated from August 1.

The ECP would be provided the results of the fresh census on December 31, the statement said.

In such a scenario, the delimitation of constituencies being conducted by the ECP on the basis of the 2017 census would become "irrelevant" and the electoral watchdog would be bound by the Constitution to start the process anew from January 1, 2023 -- which would require at least four months.

"Similarly, electoral lists will also need to be reviewed," the press release added.

BS as usual from ECP. We should disband such a useless institution and make FB/ING/ Youtube polls. Much faster and cheaper.

So ECP said in court that they can not conduct elections before October 2022. But that date is now extended to May 2023 ?

This while conduction elections and being prepared always is the sole responsibility of ECP ? Yah. We should end it too along NAB Mr Khakan abbasi .

China has over $60 billion invested in Pakistan. Its time they use their leverage and influence and remove these criminals from power.

The yanks and Indians did it for $50 million.

Threaten to pull the plug on CPEC and ask for repayment if IK is not reinstated under a presidential system which gives him full and thorough autonomy for 15 years.

Good. Should give the new government time to give relief to the people who suffered badly due to PTI's fiscal policies.

SC remarked on many occasions that they are the saviors/guards of the Consitution they should take the sou-moto and call Mr. Sickander Sultan and take the decision on the same footing as against IK.
Gave the deadline of time and date and a few hours before opening the courts before midnight to prove their loyalty to the constitution else people will be very right to think about the dishonesty and disloyalty of the courts - implement the Article6 on 'Black Coats'.
