While, the Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) consultation with the election commission is slated for August 29.

The focus of these consultations includes various aspects like the division of constituencies, updates to electoral rolls, the election timetable, and the overall conduct of the general elections.

Delegations from Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Jamiat Ulema-e- Islam-Fazl (JUI-F), and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) have previously engaged with ECP officials.

Earlier, the ECP had cautioned both federal and provincial caretaker governments against engaging in political activities that could potentially disrupt the smooth progression of elections.

In letters addressed to these caretaker administrations, the electoral authority emphasized that they must avoid actions that might influence elections or compromise the fairness and integrity of the process.
