The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has reduced six assembly seats in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) province in its new delimitation, on Thursday.
The Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazl (JUI-F) has decided to initiate a legal battle against the ECP regarding these new delimitations, which have resulted in the reduction of six assembly seats in KP.
In a statement, a spokesperson for JUI-F mentioned that the election commission’s actions have exacerbated the sense of deprivation in KP. Consequently, JUI-F has opted to establish a provincial-level legal team to challenge the new delimitations.
Moreover, the religious-political party has declared its intent to engage in a legal battle to reinstate the assembly seats for KP. The spokesperson placed the blame on the ECP for creating an atmosphere of uncertainty in the country.
