ECP had scheduled the by-polls on nine National Assembly (NA) seats on September 25.
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has moved the Islamabad High Court (IHC) against a schedule of by-elections in nine constituencies of the National Assembly.
In its petition, PTI pleaded the court to suspend the election schedule as a petition regarding the phased acceptance of PTI lawmakers’ resignations is being heard by the same court.
A day earlier, ECP had scheduled the by-polls on nine National Assembly (NA) seats on September 25.
According to the schedule notified by ECP on Friday, hopefuls can submit their nomination papers to the returning officer from August 10 to 13.
Names of nominated candidates will be published on August 14 while an appellate tribunal of the ECP will have until August 25 to decide on all appeals against the decisions of the returning officer to accept or reject nominations.
