Elections for KP assembly to be held on 28th May: Governor

Governor Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Haji Ghulam Ali has said elections for the provincial assembly will be held on 28th May this year.

Talking to the media outside the Election Commission of Pakistan in Islamabad this afternoon, he said we have fulfilled the constitutional requirement by conveying the ECP of the election date in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

He said we were concerned about deteriorating law and order situation and other matters, including the ongoing population census and delimitation of constituencies in light of the findings of the fresh head counts of the population.

The Governor said we have given the election date for the provincial assembly and now it is responsibility of the commission and other concerned to hold elections in the province in a peaceful and transparent manner.
