Balochistan's Home Ministry asks ECP to defer PB-20 Pishin by-election
January 3, 2021

QUETTA (92 News) - The Balochistan's Home Ministry has requested from the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to postpone by-election on a provincial assembly seat (PB-20) in Pishin.

According to the details garnered, the ministry wrote a letter to the ECP requesting it to postpone by-election on a provincial assembly seat (PB-20) in Pishin.

The letter states that Pishin would be experiencing severe cold conditions in January and February as the weather department has forecast snowfall in the district during this period, due to which the local administration will not be able to make arrangements for the by-election slated for February 16.

Moreover, the security situation is unstable as the law enforcement agencies are making all-out efforts to eliminate anti-state elements, the letter said, adding the second wave of the coronavirus is also taking a heavy toll on the people and that political activities, corner meetings and rallies amid the pandemic will potentially lead to the further spread of the virus.

The government, therefore, asked the commission to postpone the by-election.
