The Sindh government has said that it cannot hold repolling on certain polling stations in NA-250 of Karachi on May 19 due to security reasons, reported a private TV channel on Wednesday night.

The provincial government wrote a letter to the Election Commission of Pakistan, excusing from holding elections in the said constituency for security threats.

Earlier, the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) rejected the decision by the Election Commission of Pakistan to conduct repolling on some NA-250 polling stations, where polling was postponed on May 11 due to reports of alleged rigging and absence of electoral staff. The Muttahida demanded repolling in the whole constituency.
