The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) announced on Thursday that general elections in the country will take place in the last week of January 2024.
The electoral body said the initial list of delimitations, which are being carried out in line with the new census, will be published on September 27.
The ECP said it reviewed the progress on the delimitation process today and decided that the final list of constituencies will be published on November 30 after hearing the objections and suggestions related to the delimitations.
Subsequently, the polls will be held in the last week of January 2024 following the completion of the 54-day election schedule, the ECP statement added.
The ECP’s statement finally ended the uncertainty surrounding the elections as the previous Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM)-led government move to approve a new census mandated the electoral body to hold new delimitation before holding polls, sparking fears of undue delay in polls.
