Electoral candidates continue submitting nomination papers


ISLAMABAD: Electoral candidates continued to submit nomination papers for the second day on Tuesday.

The submission of the nomination papers had delayed after the Lahore High Court (LHC) ordered the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to revise its nomination papers. However, the decision was overturned and candidates were allowed to submit their forms from June 4.

After the submission of forms till June 8, the papers will be scrutinised on June 14, while appeals against decisions by returning officers can be filed till June 19, as per the ECP. The appeal tribunal will wind up requests by June 26 and a day later, on June 27, candidates’ list would be displayed again.

The candidates will then have time until June 28 to withdraw their nomination papers, after which a new list, with election symbols, would be issued on June 29.
