The Supreme Court of Pakistan in its verdict has directed all the four provinces to hold local body’s elections in September this year. It is very surprising that the Punjab, and Sindh provincial governments, particularly the latter, are not fully prepared to implement the verdict in just 90 days. The fact of the matter is that they didn't intend to hold these elections in near future, and hence were caught unawares by the highest court, ordering them to obey its verdict in September.
The Supreme Court has strongly asserted that even a single days’ delay would not be tolerated. The PTI government of KP is however, happy for the simple reason that soon after installing its government in KPK; it has persistently shown its intention to hold these local government elections in next few months. This proves that PTI follows and practices constitution of Pakistan more than any other political party.
