- It is now up to all Pakistanis to ensure that the ruling is implemented and that the country’s democracy is upheld.
The Supreme Court of Pakistan has struck down the decision by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to postpone the elections in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP). In a hearing on Monday, the court ruled that the ECP had acted outside of its constitutional mandate by delaying the polls.
The decision comes as a relief to many political parties and voters who had criticized the ECP for delaying the elections. The ruling is likely to have a significant impact on the political landscape of Pakistan, particularly in Punjab, which is the country’s most populous province.
The Supreme Court’s ruling requires that the elections in Punjab be held on 13th May, as previously scheduled. The court has also ordered that the ECP submit a report on the matter within a week.
This ruling places a significant responsibility on the shoulders of all Pakistanis to ensure that the SC’s decision is implemented. It is crucial for the country’s democracy that elections are held on time and that the voice of the people is heard.
