Conducting LB elections on Jan 18 is no more possible, says Memon
KARACHI: Sindh Information Minister Sherjeel Memon said on Monday that delimitations of the constituencies will be done once again following the decision of Sindh High Court (SHC), ARY News reported.
Sherjeel Memon said that it is no more possible to conduct Local Body elections on January 18, as SHC (SHC) has termed the amendments in the Sindh Local Government Act (SLGA) 2013 as unconstitutional.
“The nomination papers were received on the basis of newly formed SLGA, which has been now cancelled with high court’s decision”, he added.
The Minister said that Sindh government has an option to contact supreme court against High court’s decision.
Sherjeel Memon said that delimitation of constituencies done in the 2001 under Musharraf’s rule was with the motive to make political allies happy and PPP can’t not accept it.
Earlier, a two member bench, comprising of Justice Sajjad Ali Shah and Justice Farooq Shah, termed the amendments unconstitutional.
Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) and other political and social parties had challenged the amendments in the Sindh High Court earlier.
