Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) Secretary Ishtiaq Ahmad Khan has said that the commission has decided to hold a meeting of all four provinces regarding the conduction of local bodies’ elections.

In a statement‚ he said the meeting would be held in the last week of September. He said laws for the LB polls should be similar in all the provinces, adding that a similarity would be helpful for conducting of the polls.

“Holding the LB elections on party basis in one province may create complications,” he said.
