ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has filed a constitutional petition in the Supreme Court of Pakistan to hold the general elections in 90 days.
PTI Secretary General Umar Ayub filed the petition through the counsel Senator Ali Zafar, requesting the Supreme Court to direct the President to announce the date of elections within 90 days.
The Supreme Court should also issue directives to the governors of the four provinces, the petition said.
It has also been requested in the petition to annul the decision of the Council of Common Interests (CCI).
The CCI had recently made a decision that the upcoming general elections should be conducted based on the results of a new census, a process anticipated to extend over approximately four months.
