LHC sets aside delimitation in three constituencies

LAHORE: The Lahore High Court on Monday set aside delimitation of three provincial constituencies in Gujrat and directed the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to carry out fresh delimitation.

Some voters from the constituencies had filed petitions pleading that the ECP held delimitation of their constituencies including PP-32, PP-33 and PP-34. Barrister Syed Ali Zafar argued on behalf the petitioners and stated that the ECP violated rules of delimitation while performing the delimitation of the constituencies in question. He said the petitioners had filed objections against the wrong delimitation but the ECP dismissed the same without taking them into account. He asked the court to set aside the delimitation of the three constituencies and order the ECP to hold the process afresh. Allowing the petitions, the court set aside the impugned notifications.
