Islamabad (Web Desk): The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Wednesday rescheduled the polling date for bye-election in NA-75 Daska-Sialkot constituency from 18th of this month to 10th of the next month.
The commission revised the polling date after the Punjab government sought time to fill the vacant positions of administrative officers in the region where the polls will be held.
The ECP also directed the Punjab Government to immediately appoint administrative officers to the vacant posts on permanent basis in this regard.
Earlier, the ECP ordered re-pooling in NA-75 Daska on March 18.
According to details, the Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Sikandar Sultan Raja declared that the by-election in the constituency was not fair and transparent.
A five-member ECP bench heard the case and the decision was announced in presence of the candidates from PTI, PML-N.
The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had requested the ECP to hold polling again in the Daska constituency as the February 19 election was marred by controversies and clashes.
