Government sources say that the North Western and Central Provincial Councils are scheduled to be dissolved tomorrow.

According to these sources, the gazette notification for the election of the Northern Provincial Council too will be issued tomorrow.

 

North Western and Central Provincial Council Chief Ministers say that by now they have signed the documents for dissolving the provincial councils and submitted them to the Provincial Governors.

 

They said so in response to a query made by our news team.

 

If these provincial councils are dissolved tomorrow the relevant election will be held in the third or last week of September.

 

The Election Secretariat said that the Election Commissioner would issue the gazette notification calling for nominations within a week after the President or Governor dissolves the provincial councils.

 

Nominations should be called within 14 or 21 days after the release of the said gazette notification.

 

Election should be held between five and eight weeks after, day that ends calling of nominations.

 

Accordingly, most probably the election will be held in the third or last week of September.

However earlier it had been said that the election would be held either on September 7TH or 14TH.
