ISLAMABAD (92 News) - Chief Election Commissioner Sikandar Sultan Raja told the Supreme Court that four months are required for the delimitations of constituencies and 90 days for the elections.

Chief Justice Umar Atta Bandial questioned the CEC whether the ECP wants to do delimitations across the country. The CEC replied that the ECP wants to do delimitations across the country.

He said that the ECP had written 16 letters to the government for delimitations, but nothing could be done in this regard. "Seats have reduced after the merger of the FATA," he told court.
