Earlier, the ECP expressed concerns over the deteriorating law and order situation in Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) ahead of the General Elections 2024 but reaffirmed its commitment to conduct the polls on time.

In an emergency meeting in the wake of violent incidents in Balochistan and KP that at least left six people killed and 13 others injured, the ECP maintained that the law and order situation in both provinces is not satisfactory .

Officials of Balochistan and KP governments and law enforcement agencies briefed the ECP on the law and order situation.

In a press statement after the meeting, Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Sikandar Sultan Raja said that those who are trying to obstruct the polls by disturbing the peace would be dealt with strictly.

“There should be no confusion or misunderstanding as the General Elections 2024 will be held on time,” the CEC made it clear. He said that terrorism is the biggest enemy of the electoral process.
