Re-polling in NA-75 Daska: Prep work remain in full swing to hold re-polling for the by-election in the National Assembly constituency NA-75 Daska on April 10 (Saturday).
A close competition is on the cards in between Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) candidate Nosheen Iftikhar as well as Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) Ali Asjad Malhi in the by-election.
On the other hand, The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has on Thursday made it necessary for administering policemans as well as assistant presiding officers to maintain mobile phones with them during NA-75 Daska by-election.
The ECP has actually claimed in its directions that the presiding policemans will certainly be bound to take image of Form-45 in visibility of ballot agents and also send it to the worried returning police officer (RO).
The election commission has actually routed the administering officers, that will also submit forensic details to the returning office, to keep their location service active. The presiding officers will reach the RO office in person in case of network problem.
Earlier, the Supreme Court on April 2 (Friday) had upheld the Election Commission of Pakistan’s (ECP) decision to hold re-polling in the entire National Assembly constituency NA-75 in Daska.
A three-member bench of the apex court, headed by Justice Umer Ata Bandial, heard the petition of PTI candidate Ali Asjad Malhi, challenging the ECP order of February 25, 2021, declaring the by-election at NA-75 Daska void and ordering re-polling in the whole constituency.
