LAHORE: The federal government on Wednesday assured the Lahore High Court (LHC) that local bodies elections will be held on September 20 this year.
Justice Ayesha A Malik of LHC was hearing the case. During case proceedings, petitioner’s lawyer told the court that the government is not taking the matter seriously and several issues are surfacing due to delay in holding of the local government polls. It is clearly violation of the law and constitution, he added.
The government’s lawyer informed the court that all arrangements have been finalized and polling would take place on September 20 as per the orders of the Supreme Court.
After hearing the arguments, the LHC disposed off the petition.
