Pakistan : The Electoral Commission announces the date for holding the general elections

About two months after the dissolution of Parliament, the Electoral Commission of Pakistan announced that general elections in the country will be held next January, with the participation of about 127 million voters.

The Election Commission of Pakistan announced on Thursday that general elections will be held next January.

The committee said in a statement, “The long-awaited elections will be held in the last week of January,” without specifying a specific date.

She added, "The final list of departments will be published on November 30."

About 127 million voters will cast their votes in the next general elections, according to the same source.

The South Asian country is governed by a transitional government led by acting Prime Minister Anwar Haq Kakar, after the dissolution of the House of Representatives, known as the National Assembly, on August 9.

President Arif Alvi dissolved the National Assembly on the advice of outgoing Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, paving the way for a national vote within 90 days, as required by the constitution.

However, the Council of Common Interests, a constitutional body made up of the prime minister and chief ministers of all provinces, last month approved the controversial results of the new nationwide census, making it almost certain that the elections will not be held on schedule.

The Election Commission said in a statement that it will need “at least an additional 4 months to circulate the modern population census to the new electoral districts in the country.”

She announced that the timetable for the new demarcation of electoral districts, according to the results of the new census, will take place on December 14.

National elections were scheduled to be held in November 2023.

The Election Commission also announced last month, excluding Khan from running for elections or holding any position for a period of 5 years.

On July 25, 2018, the previous general elections were held in Pakistan, which were held at the national level in 272 electoral districts, each district electing one member of the National Assembly.

At the district level, elections were held in each of the four districts to elect district council members

"Immediately after census and delimitation elections": Home Minister Amit Shah in Lok Sabha

Women's Reservation Bill was stuck for three decades.
The proposal for women's reservation in Parliament was stuck for three decades. For the first time in 1974, the Committee to Assess the Status of Women raised this issue. After this, in 2010, the Manmohan government got the 33% reservation bill for women passed in the Rajya Sabha with majority. But then SP and RJD opposed the women's reservation bill. Both the parties had threatened to withdraw support from the then UPA government. After this the bill was not introduced in the Lok Sabha.

Even if the Women's Reservation Bill becomes law, what is the problem?
According to a top government source, women's reservation may become possible from the 2029 Lok Sabha elections. There is a long constitutional process to implement reservation. This bill does not require the approval of 50 percent of the state legislatures. That means it will become a law after it is passed by the Parliament and approved by the President. But the government will first notify the rules of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). After this the census work will start. After that the Delimitation Commission will complete the work of delimitation of Lok Sabha and Assembly. The Women's Reservation Act will come into force only after the census and delimitation process is completed.
