Gilgit Baltistan elections to be held on Nov 15

President Dr Arif Alvi on Wednesday gave a go-ahead to the holding of general elections for the Gilgit-Baltistan assembly on November 15.

He approved a summary regarding the polls sent to him by Prime Minister Imran Khan. The Legislative Assembly of Gilgit Baltistan was dissolved after it completed its five-year tenure on 24 June.

Previously, the Gilgit Baltistan Election Commission had postponed the elections to the Gilgit-Baltistan assembly and suspended the election schedule issued on July 2.

The election schedule had been suspended in the wake of the decision of the Gilgit-Baltistan Chief Justice of Court, a notification issued by the commission said.

According to the election schedule issued on July 2 the polling was supposed to be held on August 18.–INP
