The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Friday approved the security plan regarding the conduction of Daska by-elections on April 10.

According to the details, ECP has decided to conduct the re-elections under the presence of the Pakistan Army. In this regard, the Election Commission has also sent a letter to the government regarding the deployment of the army.

Earlier today, the Supreme Court (SC) rejected the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) appeal against the earlier directives of the Election Commission of Pakistan for re-polling in the constituency of NA-75 Sialkot-IV (Daska) and maintained the polling body’s decision.

The ECP had earlier declared the by-poll held on February 19 in the constituency null and void and ordered re-election on March 18 which was last rescheduled to take place on April 10.

A three-member apex bench presided by Justice Umar Ata Bandial, dismissed PTI candidate Ali Asjad Malhi’s petition and announced the short order after hearing arguments by all sides.
