ISLAMABAD-The Supreme Court of Pakistan has summoned final schedule of local body elections in Sindh, Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa by tomorrow (Friday).
Justice Jawad S Khawaja said that politicians might have their own compulsions in holding the election but the only compulsion the court has is constitution, Dunya News reported.
According to the details, Supreme Court has ruled that the constitutional requirements of holding the local body elections are not being met for the past five years and that the public safety forums for public relief are non-functioning because of it.
