The Supreme Court ruled on Tuesday that the Election Commission of Pakistan’s (ECP) decision to postpone polls to the Punjab Assembly till Oct 8 was unconstitutional and fixed May 14 as the date for polls in the province. The ECP had on March 22 announced that the elections in Punjab would be held on October 8. The date was earlier set on April 30, in consultation with the president.
The no-confidence motion tabled by the opposition of Pakistan against Prime Minister Imran Khan was dismissed by the National Assembly Deputy Speaker Qasim Khan Suri. Suri termed it against Article 5 of the Constitution.
