Islamabad: The Supreme Court of Pakistan has directed Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to conduct polls in NA-60 constituency (Rawalpindi-IV).
Following the decision, Awami Muslim League (AML) leader Sheikh Rasheed withdrew his petition against the delay in elections in the constituency.
Speaking to media, the AML leader said that the nation wants change which can only be delivered by Imran Khan.
“Khan’s victory is the win of the nation. Rashid Shafiq will contest election from our side in NA-60. One of my contenders was disqualified while the other withdrew in my support,” told Rasheed.
On July 22, the ECP postponed polling in the NA-60 constituency due to Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) candidate Hanif Abbasi’s disqualification by the Control of Narcotics Substances (CNS) Court of Rawalpindi a day earlier.
