News by:

Clearing the much-talked about uncertainty over probable delay in holding of the upcoming general elections, the Supreme Court on Sunday suspended a ruling of the Lahore High Court (LHC) with regard to the new nomination forms.
This order came on petitions filed by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) and former Speaker National Assembly Sardar Ayaz Sadiq against the June 1 ruling of the LHC in the apex court’s Lahore registry.
Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar categorically stated that the polls will be held on July 25. “The ECP will be solely responsible if the elections are delayed,� he warned.
