By-election for two seats of Senate from Punjab to be held on Nov 15


ISLAMABAD: By-election for two seats of Senate from Punjab, including a general and a reserved seat for women, will be held on Thursday.

These seats had fallen vacant due to de-notification of Haroon Khan and Saadia Abbasi as senators in light of a Supreme Court verdict.

According to Election Commission of Pakistan, the polling will be held at Punjab Assembly building in Lahore from 0900 hours to 1600 hours without any break.

The ECP has appointed Punjab Election Commissioner Zafar Iqbal Hussain as returning officer besides appointing five polling officers to ensure free, fair and transparent polling process.
