PPP asks ECP to hold much delayed by-elections in Sindh.

KARACHI -- The ruling party in Sindh, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), on Wednesday demanded of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to hold by-elections in three provincial constituencies deferred due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In a letter written to the ECP, PPP leader Taj Haider asked the Commission to conduct by-elections in three Sindh Assembly constituencies - PS-43 Sanghar, PS-52 Umarkot and PS-88 Malir.

Taj Haider was of the view that the coronavirus pandemic was almost non-existent in these three constituencies.

According to sources, the ECP has received Taj Haider's letter about by-elections.

The letter states that under Article 224(4) an election on a vacant should be held within 60 days.

Many more days have passed after the first 60 days, it adds.
