The last week of January 2024 will see the general elections, according to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).
The commission claimed in a press release that it has been engaged in constituency mapping. On September 27, 2023, it intends to make a preliminary list of these divisions available.
After taking into account objections and suggestions, the list will be completed by November 30.
With everything in place, the ECP has announced that the general election will take place at the end of January 2019 and that the campaign will last 54 days.
The announcement comes in response to the ECP’s yesterday’s statement, which mentioned arranging a meeting with political parties to discuss the general elections’ code of conduct for next month.
The ECP claimed that it had given a draft code of conduct to political parties in order to get their feedback before establishing the final standards.
The proposed code places a strong emphasis on the need for political parties, candidates, and election workers to refrain from endorsing ideas or acting in a way that could be detrimental to Pakistan’s ideals, sovereignty, stability, security, moral standards, public order, or the independence and reputation of its judiciary.
Additionally, they must refrain from disparaging or making fun of any branches of government, such as the military and judiciary.
