Karachi: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Karachi has approached the Sindh High Court (SHC) for holding local body elections in Sindh immediately.

PTI has filed a constitutional petition in which it was stated that the local bodies in Sindh had been dissolved in August 2020 while the provincial government was bound to hold new elections within 120 days. Despite the passage of one year, local body elections were not held.

PTI leader Khurram Sher Zaman while talking to media persons said they have filed a constitutional petition in the SHC to hold local body elections in the province as soon as possible under Article 140A of the Constitution of Pakistan.

Under Article 140A, the provincial governments are required to hold local elections within 120 days. The main reason for the PPP’s delay in the local government elections was the fear of the PTI success.

He further said they were sure that the Sindh High Court would hear their petition keeping in view the concerns and problems of the people of Sindh.
