Local govt polls not possible before Jan 31, Punjab govt told
The Election Commission says it took the decision in consultation with the National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC).
Earlier, the election commission had sought the Punjab government’s advice on the local government elections, but the Punjab government had not responded. On this, the Election Commission made the decision on its own.
The Election Commission says it will review the situation after January 31 and again consult the NCOC on the elections.
