Pakistan Press Foundation

ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) Wednesday rejected media reports claiming delay in elections and non-preparation of electoral rolls and decided to take legal action against those spreading such rumours.

In a statement, the ECP spokesperson said the news of any delay in elections in media circles was absolutely baseless and misleading and reports related to non-preparation of electoral rolls were absolutely false.

“The Election Commission has decided to approach Pemra against those spreading such false news so that legal action can be taken against them,” he maintained.

In this regard, he explained, the ECP had sought transcripts and recordings of news broadcast on various channels for further action.

Meanwhile, the ECP announced that the transportation of final (updated) electoral rolls to different districts for the February 8 general elections had started.

According to an ECP spokesperson, the printing of updated electoral rolls is underway at the National Database and Registration Authority, and transportation of the same to various districts has begun. The ECP is set to publish the final list of delimitation of constituencies today (November 30).
