ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court (SC) of Pakistan on Tuesday directed the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to handle the case regarding the delimitation of constituencies in Sindh.

The decision was made during a session led by Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial, where the two-member bench discussed the matter.

Chief Justice Bandial emphasised that the issue of defining delimitations is of paramount public interest and has been recurrently brought before the apex court.

Acknowledging the sensitivity surrounding this issue, he urged the election commission to ensure a transparent and equitable approach in establishing constituency limits.

The concerns raised about fairness in the delimitation process, particularly in Sindh, were highlighted during the hearing.

“When will the election commission conduct the general elections?” questioned Bandial. With a hint of humor, he added, “No dates yet fixed for the election.” However, he stressed the importance of resolving all pertinent issues before the elections are held.

The case in question pertains to the delimitation of constituencies PS-7, PS-8, and PS-9, which had been challenged and brought before the SC.

As the ECP takes on the responsibility to address the concerns, it remains to be seen how the issue of constituency delimitations in Sindh will be resolved in the lead-up to the next elections.
