The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has convened a consultative session of all political parties to prepare a code of conduct for the next elections.
According to sources, the ECP summoned the meeting on June 20. The session will be chaired by the chief election commissioner. The election commission already sought recommendations from all political parties over code of conduct and a self-prepared draft of conduct was also sent to political parties.
Meanwhile, Acting Chief Election Commissioner Justice Shakirullah Jan said the elections would be held on time, and in a free and fair manner.
He said it was the government’s responsibility to maintain law and order; however, the commission could also issue directives in this regard.
