June 7, 2022 04:24 PM


The government of Sindh on Tuesday expressed its willingness to the Sindh High Court (SHC) to delay the local bodies’ (LBs) elections in the province, reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

During the hearing of the petition filed by Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) Convener Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, seeking court order for legislation in order to empower the local governments, the provincial government, in its reply, said that if the polls were held on time the legislation as demanded by the MQM-P would not be possible. “Similarly, the demarcations of constituencies will also not be possible,” Sindh government’s counsel said. 

The court, on the occasion, directed counsel for the MQM-P to submit reply to the minutes of select committee meeting. 

Later, the SHC adjourned hearing of the case until June 20, 2022.
