NA-123 elections within 60 days, SC orders

ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Monday ordered the Election Commission of Pakistan to hold elections in NA-123 Lahore and complete the process within 60 days.

The constituency is believed to be a stronghold of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s chief Nawaz Sharif.

A three-member Supreme Court bench headed by the Chief Justice issued the order while reviewing a petition filed by Syed Manzoor Gilani, a candidate for NA-123.

The court directed the Election Commission to invite fresh candidates as well.

The court also ordered by-elections on the Punjab provincial seats PP-82 Jhang and PP-182 Bahawalnagar. — DawnNews
