By-elections on 20 general seats of the Punjab Assembly (PA), which had fallen vacant after the Election Commission of Pakistan’s (ECP) verdict, will be held on July 17, 2022, reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

Announcing the elections’ schedule on Wednesday, the ECP said that candidates would be able to file their nomination papers from June 4 to June 7. “The scrutiny of these papers will be completed by June 11, while the candidates will be allotted their election symbols by June 24,” read the statement released by the commission. 

The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) had deseated 25 members of the provincial assembly belonging to the PTI, who had voted in favour of Hamza Shehbaz Sharif in the chief minister's election, ignoring party's directive not to do so.
