The local bodies’ elections are likely to be delayed in Islamabad, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

On the request of the Metropolitan Corporation (MC), the number of new Union Councils (UCs) are likely to be increased.

The Home Ministry has sent a summary to the cabinet seeking an increase in the number of Union Councils.

The summary has demanded that the cabinet increase the number of Union Councils from 101 to 125.

“101 Union Councils have been created in proportion to the 2017 population. Due to the increase in the population of Islamabad, the number of Union Councils should be increased to 125,” the summary demanded.

It is to be noted here that the election commission set December 31 as the date for local bodies’ elections.
