Sindh LG elections: PTI files a constitutional petition at Supreme Court

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has filed a petition with the Supreme Court (SC) about the upcoming elections for the Sindh local government (LG).

The constitutional petition that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) submitted against the Sindh LG elections has been given the green light for a hearing by the Supreme Court of Pakistan (SC).

PTI The President of Sindh, Ali Zaidi, has expressed his gratitude to the top court for granting permission for the constitutional petition to be heard. He stated that the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) is acting in a manner that is disrespectful to the court by organizing the Sindh LG elections.

He stated that he has complete faith in the judicial system and that free and fair local government elections are the only way to address the core concerns of the people living in the province.

According to Zaidi, it would be inappropriate to organize the elections without first obeying the Supreme Court’s rulings. He went on to say that the announcement of elections was impossible until the process of redistricting was finished.

“Delimitation is still in the process of being finished in the Keamari and West Districts of Karachi. How is it possible for a candidate to win elections while the delimitation is not complete? In compliance with the provisions of Article 140A, the Sindh government is required to alter the LG Act.

“The elections ought to be delayed until the completion of the modifications to the LG Act and the redistricting. The order that was issued by the supreme court on February 1 must be carried out. We do not wish for the election to be delayed and instead wish to be present for the order of the court.

He was critical of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), which is currently in power and has enacted the LG legislation to protect its own interests. Ali Zaidi has voiced his optimism that the Supreme Court will rule in favor of the Sindh citizen by saying that the legal team representing the PTI will make a compelling case to the top court.
