The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly’s Senate elections have all the necessary arrangements in place. Even after 10 am, officials responsible for conducting Senate elections in the assembly did not permit polling for the upper house election.

Ahmed Karim Kundi of the opposition made the request for a postponement of the elections to the provincial election commissioner. The opposition member declared that the election ought to be postponed since 25 members with reserved seats had not yet taken the oath of office.

At the opposition’s request, the provincial election commissioner had spoken with Chief Election Commissioner Sikandar Sultan Raja.

The Peshawar High Court previously instructed the Speaker of the provincial legislature to administer an oath to the elected member of a reserved seat. However, instead of complying with the decision, he appealed it to the Supreme Court.
