ISLAMABAD  -  An important meeting of the Election Commission is being held here today (Monday) to take into consideration the preparation of electoral rolls and holding of by-elections. The meeting, to be chaired by Chief Election Commissioner Justice ® Hamid Ali Mirza, will devise a strategy to complete error-free electoral rolls in line with the Supreme Court directives.
The commission has not yet taken a decision about postponement of February 20 by-elections and it is likely that these would also be delayed because the Supreme Court has directed it to hold by-elections only when the electoral rolls in these constituencies were error-free.
