ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) is expected to announce the election schedule for the next general elections on Friday (today) after it called an emergency meeting at 11am.

In a key meeting being chaired by the Chief Election Commissioner in Islamabad, the ECP will also deliberate further on how it can reduce the time period for completing the delimitation process.

The meeting is expected to hold a discussion on shortening the outer limit of delimitation from 120 days.

It is also pertinent to note here that the emergency huddle was called in after discussions with political parties.

Yesterday, the watchdog had vowed to expedite the delimitation of constituencies and announce a schedule for the upcoming general polls thereafter, alleviating concerns that the ballot could be deferred for an indefinite period to extend the rule of the interim government.
