The Election Commission has decided to postpone the Local Government (LG) elections which was scheduled to be held on 9th March. “The new date will be announced on 03rd March.” the Commission said.
In a motion filed before the Supreme Court (SC), the Election Commission has said that the failure by the Treasury to release adequate funds has made it difficult to hold the elections as scheduled.
As a result, the Election Commission said it is unable to hold the election despite an earlier pledge that the polls will be held on the given date.
Also, the Postal voting of the 2023 Local Government Election has already been postponed indefinitely.
