ISLAMABAD – The Supreme Court of Pakistan upheld its earlier decision to conduct elections in Punjab on May 14.
The court ruled in a three-page ruling that the April 4 order directing the ECP to conduct polls in Punjab on May 14 “remained unchanged.”
The court also rejected accusations that it had ordered the PDM-led administration and the PTI to conduct discussions in order to resolve the present deadlock. “… It was made clear by the court that the talks and negotiations between the two sides were to be entirely their own effort, with no direction or order of the court in this regard in any way,” said the judgement.
The hearing was later postponed by the court.
