Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Justice (r) Fakhruddin G Ibrahim said that a meeting would be held soon to discuss Supreme Court’s verdict regarding delimitation of Karachi.

Earlier on Jan 22 Fakhruddin G Ebrahim had categorically stated that delimitation of constituencies in Karachi before general elections was not possible and pointed out that the absence of fresh census might make it impossible to implement the Supreme Court order in this regard.

The court had observed on November 26 that constituencies in Karachi should be delimited in a manner that they comprise “mixed population” to avoid political polarisation and issued notice to the secretary of the Election Commission of Pakistan after an ECP official submitted that the process of delimitation of constituencies in the city could not be initiated.
