ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), rejecting the decision of the Sindh government, decided to stick to completing the second phase of local body elections in the province on January 15.

ECP members decided on this during a meeting chaired by Chief Election Commissioner Sikander Sultan Raja at its headquarters in Islamabad today (Friday).

In a decision seen as a boon for the newly united Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) and a bane for the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and the Jamaat-e-Islami (JI), the Pakistan Peoples Party’s (PPP) Sindh government had postponed late Thursday night the second phase of the local government elections in all the seven districts of Karachi division and the Hyderabad and Dadu districts of the Hyderabad division.

Addressing a press conference after an important meeting chaired by Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah at CM House, Information Minister Sharjeel Inam Memon had said that the LG polls were being put off in Karachi division, and Hyderabad and Dadu districts in Hyderabad division.

This is a developing story and is being updated with more detail.
