Senate Receives Third Resolution Proposing Election Postponement

Election Postponement

A third resolution suggesting the Election Postponement, scheduled on February 8, was tabled in the Senate on Sunday. Senator Hilalur Rehman, an independent senator from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), moved the resolution citing adverse weather conditions and security concerns in the province.

The resolution highlights the challenges posed by the increasingly cold weather and snowfall, creating an unfavourable environment for citizens to exercise their voting rights and impeding candidates’ campaign efforts. Senator Hilalur Rehman emphasized that the current conditions are not conducive to holding fair and inclusive elections.

This marks the third such resolution brought forth in the Upper House of Parliament. The incumbent Senate is expected to complete its tenure in March.

Last week, the Senate adopted a non-binding resolution advocating for the postponement of the elections due to concerns over security and adverse weather conditions. The resolution, introduced by independent Senator Dilawar Khan, received support from senators of the Balochistan Awami Party. The unexpected passage of the resolution raised eyebrows, given the low attendance of senators during the session.

The latest resolution, moved by Senator Hilalur Rehman, underlines the security threats faced by candidates in KP, particularly the risk of terrorist attacks during campaigning. It suggests that both voters and candidates in KP are experiencing a sense of deprivation and proposes the postponement of the elections to a more suitable date.

The debate surrounding the potential postponement of the elections continues to draw attention from political experts, journalists, and citizens alike. The Senate’s ongoing discussions reflect the complex considerations involving weather conditions, security issues, and the need for a fair and secure electoral process.
