Islamabad- Secretary Election Commission of Pakistan has proposed to hold elections on Senate seats from FATA on March 19.

The secretary has sent a summary to Chief Election Commissioner Sardar Raza Muhammad, proposing to hold Senate polls on the four FATA seats on March 19.

The secretary, however, made it clear that the proposed date was tentative, since he has just floated a proposal. Candidates from FATA could not participate in Senate polls on March 6th after a presidential order was issued on the eve of the election stopping them from contesting elections.
