LAHORE - The PML-Q will file a joint petition with PTI against Punjab Local Government Act 2013 (Amendment Ordinance) tomorrow (Monday).

Former Punjab CM Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi told the media that it was “unconstitutional and unlawful” to make an amendment to the local bodies’ law after the announcement of election schedule.”

He showed up at press conference after a party meeting with PML-Q chief Chaudhary Shujaat Hussain in the chair.

“Amendment in the local bodies’ law ahead of the elections for mayors, chairmen district councils and others establishes the fact that ruling party has no confidence in their representatives. That’s why they replace secret ballot with show of hand vote through amendment in the local bodies’ law,” he added.

In another announcement, Pervaiz said, “The party has decided to reorganize party at tehsil and district level. For this purpose an organizing committee will complete the this task in three months. The committee will be formed shortly.”
